Artist Tracy Hetherington (her print

Think about ink

Tracy Hetherington gives an illustrated talk at the Surrey Art Gallery on Thursday.

Who keeps a 450-pound printing press in their living room? South Surrey artist Tracy Hetherington does.

On Thursday (Dec. 3) 7:30 p.m. as part of the Thursday Artist Talk series at the Surrey Art Gallery, visitors will get to hear her discuss the process of relief printmaking and see her print samples and relief carvings.

In her illustrated talk, “Inked Up: Printmaking by Hand,” Hetherington will take the audience through the tactile joy of carving to the immediate satisfaction as a print is pulled from the ink.

Hetherington is a fine art printmaker and graphic artist. She received her BFA from the Nova Scotia University of Art and Design and a design certificate with BCIT/Emily Carr College of Art and Design. She loves drawing, printing, and typography and has shown work in Pforzheim, Germany, Hailfax, Nova Scotia, and the Confederation Centre for the Arts in Charlottetown, PEI. She returns to public showing after a creative incubation period working for Surrey Libraries. Visit her website at www.fathomfathoms.com

There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9 p.m. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.

Surrey Art Gallery Association (SAGA) is a non-profit society that offers its members the opportunity to participate in and respond to contemporary art, and be part of a community that actively supports the Surrey Art Gallery.
