Swain Studio Print-In & Launch Party

We are hosting a print-in and launch party to celebrate the opening of the Swain Print Studio -a printmaking studio in the basement of the CPI house.

Everyone is welcome to design and print their own postcard. Be sure to bring a suggested donation of $5 to cover printing supplies (Lino, ink, paper, drawing materials). The Print-In & Launch Party will take place on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 8pm-10pm.

The Swain Studio was inspired by an unexpected donation from Gregory Swain’s family in the form of an electric relief press. Gregory Swain, local Arts Habitat artist, was a prominent and well-loved Edmonton artist who passed away last year. The Print-In & Launch Party will celebrate the opening of the studio and introduce the space to local printmakers and artists of all backgrounds.
