Issue: 2021.2


Community printshops often exist in a realm somewhere between the private and public spheres, accessible to those who make prints and mysterious to those who don’t. An artistic practice in printmaking is rarely private and generally relies on some sort of collaboration or communal resources. Prints are often made in bustling shared studio environments. Artists pour their private selves into their artwork and the public nature of print distributes these multiples far and wide for all to see. In this issue of SNAPline, read about featured artist Emmanuel Osahor’s practice and enjoy the 3 beautiful cover prints created for this edition. Luke Johnson chronicles conversations with 3 artists whose work is rarely seen by the public eye. Mia Riley has presented a feature and interview with the artists behind Yolkless Press in Calgary. Riaz Mehmood opens up about his work to Danielle Seimens in this issue’s ‘My Process’. Finally, enjoy reading this year’s SNAPline Flash Fiction contest pieces by winner Stephanie Medford and runner-up Madison Dewar.
