Two BC print artists explore the effects of environmental changes and the precarious world situation where past choices made have brought us to a point where we can no longer look away. Heather Aston’s monotypes thoughtfully draw attention to the manmade ocean pollution while Wendy Morosoff Smith’s insightful collagraph monoprints hold up a message of transition and hope. They both recognize and call attention to the dire situation in our world and the need for change.
Heather Aston and Wendy Morosoff Smith met in 1990 while studying printmaking in Florence, Italy at the The Santa Reparata Art Institute. Since then, besides their 31 year friendship, they have a shared a love of design and making original prints. Over these years they have worked in studios on Granville Island, Japan, Italy and Newfoundland. They have taught printmaking and exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions. This is their first duo show together.
