An Open Call to professional Canadian-based artists for TOMPE2022 attracted nearly 250 entries from 75 artists across Canada. Artists were invited to submit up to four original miniature prints in any printmaking medium or combination of mediums for consideration by a panel of three jurors:
DAVID BOBIER, Media Artist, Curator, Founder and Director – VibraFusionLab
CASSANDRA GETTY, Curator of Art, Museum London
JENN LAW, Artist and Co-founder and Editor of Arts + Letters press
After a challenging jurying process, 95 works by 60 artists were selected for the final exhibition, as well as First, Second, and Third prize winners and three Honourable Mentions. These prize winners will be announced at the Virtual Opening Reception being held on August 20. The Opening Reception will also include a sneak peek at the exhibition as well as opening remarks by the jurors.
A full-colour exhibition catalogue has been published to commemorate the exhibition and will be distributed to all participating artists, as well as printmaking collectives and institutions across Canada.
