About the Exhibition:
In 1969, the NSCAD Lithography Workshop was established, earning international recognition and redefining the artistic potential of print in the 20th century. 50 years later, the legacy continues in a new exhibition with eight new lithographs by eight Canadian artists created in collaboration with Master Printer, Jill Graham. Celebrate the revival.
