We're excited to share the latest happenings at Artist Proof Studio!
APS Annual Student Exhibition 2023: "Bon á tirer (BAT)"
Mark your calendars for December 2nd as we invite you to our much-anticipated Annual Student Exhibition, titled Bon á tirer (BAT)
This showcase celebrates the artistic journey of our talented students over the past year. The exhibition showcases the culmination of a year of artistic exploration and innovation. This dynamic exhibition is not only a celebration of our students' exceptional talents but also a window into the transformative experience of being an APS student.
The students’ approach to printmaking is explorative and experimental. Students aspire to be contemporary and cutting edge by being at the forefront of the emancipation of traditional printmaking. The young artists are not just interested in technique but are clearly focused just as much on content. Despite the rise in digital media this group of students embrace the handmade mark. The artists have cross pollinated the different printmaking techniques to create unconventional artistic approaches to artmaking. Some of the works can be described as brave, confrontational, intimate, unapologetic and at times unconservative. The works go beyond the surface by excavating and reimaging traditional genres and subject matters in an imaginative approach.
Proceeds from sales will contribute towards student fees and registrations for the upcoming year, directly fostering the growth and development of future students. Your attendance and support play a crucial role in shaping the next generation of creative minds.
Our 3rd year students will exhibit their full body of work in January 2024. Details coming soon!

Strauss & Co. November Print Auction
We proudly participated in the Strauss & Co. print auction this November. Our students conducted live printmaking demos, providing guests with insight into the various printmaking techniques. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent nurtured at Artist Proof Studio and give access to the processes of print technique featured in the auction.
