The FCA is pleased to announce Malaspina PRINTMAKERS will also be taking part in the upcoming PRINT! event for BC Culture Days 2014. BC Culture Days is an annual event where arts and culture organizations provide free programming to the general public to encourage, nurture and further BC’s love of the arts. To celebrate, participating organizations on Granville Island will be hosting a variety of print and print-making related activities, many free for visitors to their venues from September 26th – 28th.
Malaspina’s printmakers will guide you through the process and introduce you to the fun and experimental nature of printmaking. Come on down, pick up a paintbrush and a squeegee, and create your image!
The Federation of Canadian Artists, Dundarave Print Workshop and Gallery and New Leaf Editions will also be hosting events and activities over the weekend so be sure to check the official Facebook page and webpage for the latest updates.

Prints will be judged and the best in exhibition will win a prize basket of Granville Island Goodies from local businesses such as Roger’s Chocolates, Ten Thousand Villages, Ainsworth Custom Design, Granville Island Broom Co. and the Gallery of BC Ceramics currently totalling over $150 in value!
