Members’ Preview: 5–6 pm
Public Reception: 6–7:30 pm

Curated by students in the Art History Program at Queen’s University, with Professor Stephanie Dickey, Bader Chair in Northern Baroque Art.

Printmaking is essentially a linear medium. How, then, to achieve the tonal richness of painting? Quest for Colour explores the inventive techniques through which printmakers from Albrecht Dürer to Andy Warhol have sought to answer this challenge.
