Looking to the Future of Mentorship in Print Panel Discussion


Wednesday, March 22 / 7:00 pm

Much of our lives have shifted over the past few years. Join us for a conversation between instructors, studio technicians, and life-long students as they reflect on how these changes have impacted their experience teaching and learning about printmaking. Together, they will explore what the future of mentorship in print might look like.

Barbara Balfour, a Toronto-based artist, is Full Professor in the Department of Visual Art and Art History, York University, where she teaches lithography, artist’s books, and extended print practice. Her art practice involves textual/visual relationships, with print’s multiplicity informing her artists’ books and print installation. Her critical writing includes the essay “The What and the Why of Print” (Perspectives on Contemporary Printmaking: critical writing since 1986, MUP, 2018). Recent work was selected for the Graphica Creativa Triennale (Jyväskylä, Finland, 2022).

Clinton Todd achieved his Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University in 2018. He focused on printmaking, mainly stone lithography, as well as oil painting. He previously graduated from Georgian College in Barrie from the Fine Arts Advanced program in 2015 and the Art and Design Fundamentals program in 2012.

Timothy Laurin earned a Graduate Degree from York University and has been practicing as a professional artist for more than thirty years. He has been teaching part-time for the last two decades at various colleges and universities around Ontario. Recently, he helped found an artist collective that fosters printmaking arts, bringing educational programs to the community
