The Maritime Centre for Contemporary Print (MCCP) is going to be a professional quality fine art printmaking studio and cultural hub to be located in downtown Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It is going to focus on the production and dissemination of contemporary fine art printmaking, with a vision of being an international centre for print excellence in Eastern Canada.
The MCCP studio will be open to the public through a membership program and will be equipped with professional quality equipment for the various printmaking techniques, including lithography, relief printing, intaglio, serigraphy (fine art silkscreen), letterpress, and monotype. Members will have access to the studio equipment, and regular courses will provide instruction on the various types of printmaking.
The MCCP will host residencies of international artists, with the objective of both providing top quality studio space to the artist while also bringing top quality international artists to Dartmouth, the HRM, and Nova Scotia to both work and share their expertise with the community.
Finally, the MCCP gallery will be the only gallery space in the Maritimes dedicated entirely to printmaking, and will be a key component of the Centre’s mandate to engage with the wider community.
Maria is the President, Executive Director, and co-founder, with her husband, of the Maritime Centre for Contemporary Print. The centre is currently in the start-up phase and is expected to be open in the next year or so. For now, you can assist by completing a short market analysis survey for the centre, available here. The survey will also allow you to submit your email to be added to our mailing list, to be kept up-to-date as we proceed towards opening this hub for printmaking excellence on the beautiful eastern coast of Canada.
