Candian-based illustrator and designer comes to Land for his American debut Friday, May 3rd, from 6-9pm.

 “Doozy” is a collection of new work by Vancouver based Illustrator and Artist, Graeme Zirk.

Webster’s defines “Doozy” as “an extraordinary one of its kind” but present day vernacular would suggest otherwise.

It’s a once pleasant word that has been adapted for sarcastic, pejorative purposes. As a result, we’re left with a paradoxical turn of phrase that leaves us our own devices to determine whether something is great or godawful.

Graeme Zirk is interested in creating work with a sentiment and aesthetic that is hard to place. Pieces can feel both refined and flawed, pleasant and melancholic, bold and doubtful, direct and cryptic. Regardless of perception, the show promises to be a real doozy.

Peter’s

Peter will be brining a large collection of his latest prints for an exhibition and will be on-hand to discuss his techniques. 

His process of carving into giant wood blocks to create multiple layers is a true wonder to behold in person. You’ll see the depth texture of each layer come to life.

Getting to see the original wood cut by his hand is a real treat. Be sure and try to come to the opening Saturday, February 16th from 2-5pm.

We’re thrilled to welcome Peter Nevins to Land on Saturday, February 16th from 2-5pm for a free printmaking demonstration.
