Annual General Meeting on March 22, 7pm via zoom.
EGPS is holding it 1st AGM on Monday March 22, 2021 at 7pm online. Our AGM is open to members and the general public (as non voting observer). For zoom link contact elephantgrassprint at gmail.com
2020 was a rough year to expand our mandate, grow our membership and move facilities during the pandemic but we managed to reopen to members in June and even hold an outdoor demonstration with a visiting printmaker. 2021 is not without its own set of challenges which we are looking to meet with a fresh approach. Join us and be part of that conversation.
Elephant Grass Printmakers Society began in 2013 as a community minded group of artists committed in expanding the tradition of printmaking and letterpress, with the goal to provide mentorship and equipment access to anyone interested regardless of experience or skill level to fine art printmaking and letterpress.
In 2020 Elephant Grass Printmakers Society became a not-for-profit Society registered in NS and moved to a central location in Annapolis Royal to be accessible on foot, by public transport. EGPS continues to offer space for members, visiting printmakers and the general public to exchange skills and experiences, work on personal projects or take workshops. During this time of uncertainty, EGPS was able to resume use of the studio for Studio Member by observing safety protocols and guidelines but has temporarily postponed in person public workshops until later in 2021.
EGPS offers two levels of membership: – Studio Membership with full access to the facilities and as a supporting Associate. EGPS continues to support itself through annual membership fees, rentals, workshops and fundraising. Membership in EGPS is open to individuals interested in printmaking regardless of experience or skill level.
