University to stage print art display

The public is invited to UBC Okanagan to take in the Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition (BIMPE), a unique and exciting survey of original printmaking on a truly international scale.

The exhibit runs Tuesday, Feb. 12, to Friday, Feb. 22 at the FINA Gallery in the Fine Arts Building, 1148 Research Rd. Admission is free.

This year’s collection, entitled BIMPE VII, features 199 artists from more than 50 countries exhibiting 395 small-scale works with images measuring no more than 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inches).

The diverse spectrum of concepts and images in miniature is open to all printmaking techniques from traditional line etching to contemporary digital processes.

Organized by the registered non-profit Society for Contemporary Works on Paper (SCWOP), BIMPE is held every two years in Vancouver.

This is the first time since it began 15 years ago that the show has traveled to the B.C. Interior. The exhibition offers viewers an opportunity to appreciate the diversity of contemporary printmaking on a scale unmatched with traditional print exhibitions.
