Join us for an inspiring & informative live presentation on the history of the Dundarave Print Workshop, celebrating 50 years of art & community making. Did you know this staple of the Vancouver art scene started right here in West Vancouver? Or that B.C. Binnings was one of the founders? From humble beginnings in a garage in Dundarave to a celebrated institution that fosters acclaimed contemporary artists, discover the origins & stories of the Dundarave Print Workshop.

Leading us on this journey through time are acclaimed printmaker & multimedia artist Arnold Shives who was a member in the early days, celebrated printmaker Gloria Shaw who has been a long-time member, & award-winning writer & historian Janet Nicol.
