Saskatoon printmaker Nik Semenoff’s artistic and educational legacy will be the focus of this retrospective exhibition curated by Stephanie Canning, Paul Constable, and Maia Stark. An advocate for health and safety with a high regard for science, Semenoff introduced eco-friendly and non-toxic processes to the printmaker’s studio. Through innovation and experimentation, Semenoff refined and revolutionized the methodology and tools for higher quality printmaking – now a world standard. Semenoff has been invited to share his ground-breaking techniques in university print departments all around the world, leaving a far reaching legacy of a new standard in printmaking. This important exhibition displays works from his rarely seen personal collection, as well as materials and descriptions of his educational contributions.
