The Dundarave Print Workshop & Gallery, located on Granville Island, is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary with a juried exhibition of original prints by both past and present members. With a striking range of media – from monotypes to intaglio, relief, carborundum, chine collé, silkscreen and digital printmaking, the workshop supports techniques for the production of small edition and one-off printmaking.

The salon style exhibition features 40 prints made over the past 40 years by more than 30 printmakers, including a print by each of the founding members, B.C. Binning and Wayne Eastcott, and early members such as Betty Jean Drummond and Pat Lewis. Eastcott, who was awarded a Canada Council grant for the creation of an innovative printmaking process in 1968, has been particularly prominent in establishing printmaking as an important art form in British Columbia.

As Western Canada’s oldest printmaking studio, Dundarave was incorporated as a not-for-profit co-operative in 1971 and moved to its present Granville Island location from the Dundarave area of West Vancouver in 1979.

Subsequent renovations were completed in the late 1990s creating a 230-square-foot gallery space devoted to the exhibition of contemporary fine art original prints, and a custom-built printmaking workshop with 820 square feet of studios. Small on floor space but huge in influence on BC’s printmaking history, Dundarave supports some 30 active members at any given time. All prints in the exhibit were made in the Dundarave Print Workshop.
