Get your entire household together to join us for an interactive Prairie Impressions Print Party on Saturday, September 18! This is the second portion of the three-part programming series: Prairie Impressions, hosted collaboratively by A/P and SNAP in conjunction with Alberta Culture Days.

After enjoying the artist presentations and printmaking demonstrations on the 7th & 14th, all are invited to experience a real-time print party from your own home. Join in the fun and print your own postcards to celebrate Alberta Culture Days with A/P and SNAP! Two talented printmakers will be giving interactive and exciting demonstrations so everyone can learn new techniques and printmaking-at-home skills. Calgary-based printmaker Christina Krentz and born in Mexico Edmonton-based Gina Pasaran will first share about their artwork and creative practice and then will showcase their favourite printmaking techniques and give live demonstrations and tutorials in which you can easily follow along at home.

Printmaking-at-home supply lists and resource guides will be available in the coming weeks and will be sent to participants to prepare in time.

Gina Pasaran is an emerging artist in Treaty 6 Territory, so-called ‘Edmonton’. She was born in Mexico and immigrated to Canada at a young age. As an artist, Gina explores facets of personal identity, mental and physical wellness, as well as navigating close relationships throughout her art practice. She is interested in aspects of care and connection. More recently, she is merging her art practice with a printmaking aspect, interchanging the dialogues between the digital world and the analog. Gina is interested in the objects that surround oneself, routines, and rituals one creates, as well as places and geographies, that can become a part of one’s identity.
Gina has a Fine Art Diploma from MacEwan University and is graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2021 from the University of Alberta. Gina has volunteered in local galleries such as the Mitchell Art Gallery and artist run centre Latitude 53 plus exhibited in group shows in project spaces like Parallel Space in Edmonton and at the Art Gallery of Alberta: Sidewalk Cinema in 2021. Currently, Gina is working with artists Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed in their Edmonton/Treaty 6 soda and sound project with the Mitchell Art Gallery and John A McDougall Elementary School.
