Printmaking at UBC Okanagan is extremely varied.  In our modest print studio, students work with five different media areas – stone lithography, zinc-plate etching, ultra-violet screen printing, relief printing, and letterpress.  Not only do students become adept at whatever print media they are studying but they learn how to work cooperatively in what can sometimes be a bustling and chaotic environment.  Everyone is constantly being influenced by everyone else in our close-knit print community.

The exhibition PRINTMAKING (February 20 – March 9, 2023 in UBCO’s FINA Gallery) was comprised of prints selected from each of the five major print media practiced in the BFA program.  Most of the works were made throughout the last year.
