I am a member of Malaspina Printmakers. It is an artist run centre with studio and gallery in the heart of Granville Island. There are great exhibitions every month and a consignment portfolio of over 1000 works. Come visit us.
The Sketchbook Project, orchestrated by The Art House Co-op, invites everyone to tell visual stories. You sign up online to receive a blank moleskin, fill it with your sketches or stories and mail it back so it can go on tour and then become part of the Brooklyn Art Library's collection. I've participated twice. Once in the Fiction Project in 2010 and once in the Sketchbook Project 2013. My books can be viewed in their Digital Library.
