The 5th annual Vancouver Art/Book Fair has already come and gone. Here are a few shots of our printing station and book table. Thanks to all for coming by, and with special thanks to the Malaspina crew in helping to keep the place manned throughout the weekend: Eric Cheun, Gabi Dao, Heilum Ng, Lee McKay and this guy: Lil Duncan; and to the Vancouver Art Book Fair for having us… Good times!
Presented by Malaspina Printmakers, HALFTONE HUB is a silkscreening station operated by artists who produce books and ephemera with Malaspina Printmakers (yours truly, along with good ol’ Ben Duncan/Bonner). Printmaking has always been an integral step in the bookmaking process, and HALFTONE HUB showcases some of the different ways this can be achieved.
HALFTONE HUB is going to be situated in the Vancouver Art Gallery Annex, 3rd Floor, Stairwell Landing, during the upcoming Vancouver Art/Book Fair. The HUB also acts as the culmination of events taking place at Malaspina during Artist’s Book Week, with books, zines, prints and ephemera available for purchase.
Malaspina Printmakers Society is a non-profit artist-run centre that was incorporated in 1975 by a group of printmaking students, fellows and instructors from the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr University of Art + Design). In the past 40 years, Malaspina has developed into a resource centre for print culture by building strong relationships with artists and other print organizations throughout the world, and its programs have been expanded beyond exhibitions to include rentals, workshops, mentorships, archives, scholarships, collaborations, residencies and sales.

Présenté par la société Malaspina Printmakers de Vancouver, HALFTONE HUB sera une station de sérigraphie opéré par quelques artistes qui utilisent les services du centre, soit moi-même et Ben Duncan/Bonner. La pratique d’impression a historiquement été lié à celle de la production de publications, donc nous allons souligner quelques pratiques utiles à ce but.
HALFTONE HUB se trouvera dans l’édifice annexe de la Gallerie d’art de Vancouver, sur le palier d’escalier du troisième étage, pendant la Foire de livre d’artistes: Vancouver Art/Book Fair.
