Celebration of the Chinese New Year


The 14th International Print Exhibition and Print Exchange celebrates the Chinese New Year 2015 inspired by this year's animal of the Chinese zodiac - The GOAT! Over 50 printmakers from around the world have created original, handprinted art works for this year's exhibition and exchange. The result is an exposition of a wide variety of traditional printmaking methods serving a wide range of creative expression.

The Year of the Goat Exhibition is open February 18 - March 1.

Join us on Sunday, March 1st for a Year of the Goat Closing Party

Sunday, March 1 from 2-5 PM.

Participating printmakers send their prints from international locations including Switzerland and China as well as from United States and all across Canada. The exhibition begins at PROOF Studio Gallery in the Distillery District. Sheila Jonah, co-owner of PROOF, has organized this exhibition and exchange for 14 years after visiting Xian China for an artist residency. It is her way to encourage and support printmaking with many printers involved.


Five Exhibition Locations

One of the interesting parts of this print exhibition is the travelling component. Many people get to enjoy and learn about traditional printmaking in several locations. After several weeks on display at PROOF Studio Gallery , the exhibition moves to OCADU - Ontario College of Art and Design University and is always displayed in the Print Department.

The Ottawa School of Art is participating as a group of 20 printmakers and the prints will travel to Ottawa for exhibition there. Another exhibition occurs at Concordia University Mouse Print Gallery in Montreal. A arts group from the Muskoka area also are keen participants and the prints travel to Muskoka Arts Place for exhibition as well. At the very end the prints are exchanged and each artist receives a package of new prints to enjoy.



Traditional printmaking methods are used for the Year of the Goat prints only. These printmaking methods include lithography, etching, wood cuts, lino cuts, silkscreen, drypoint and monoprints.

All are hand printed. All prints are for sale.
