Fiona Chinkan, Maria’s friend and collaborator came to visit this summer and filmed a studio tour with Maria. This tour shows a lot of different materials Maria works with as well as some new and older work and gives a glimpse into process and storage solutions. Enjoy watching it here!
Maria will be one of the artists on site as part of the 61st Toronto Outdoor Art Fair at Nathan Phillips Square from 15-17 July 2022. Come and say hi at booth #A66. If you cannot stop by in person, you can always visit the online fair here.
I am thrilled to offer the first printmaking workshop series from my home studio since 2019. There will be a special discount ($20 off one workshop) if you register for more than one or register with a friend.
Masking will be required. 5 participants per workshop. All materials included. See Posters for more information. Call 902-719-5007 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Maria’s reductive linocut print, Nostalgic State II, has been selected as one of 301 pieces from more than 2100 submissions for the 2020 G6 Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland, organized by the Cultural Center of Covasna County, the Lăzarea Cultural and Creation Center and the Mureș County Museum in Romania. This is the sixth edition and tenth anniversary of the Biennial of Szeklerland. Unfortunately, the museum exhibit of the biennial, which had been scheduled for the Transylvanian Art Center, has had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic, but the catalogue, selection, and awarding of prizes are still being organized.
Nostalgic is a reductive linocut printed as two limited editions, one on Shoji rice paper (three prints) and one on Fabriano rag paper (two prints), in May 2018. It is part of the Cells, Souls and Personalities series, exploring what personality traits may look like on a cellular level.
Fiona and Maria were interviewed this week about their collaborative Shared Energies project on the Canadian Podcast “In Conversation with Stephen Hurley” through VoicEd radio . If you have half an hour take a listen to the conversation on their take on the role of artists in society today, how they came to collaborate and what they have learned about the collaborative process.
Maria is delighted to invite the public to visit her studio at 98 Victoria Road in Dartmouth, NS, Canada on October 20th, noon – 3pm. A variety of pieces from different bodies of work will be on view including pieces from Cellular Expressions as well as Cells, Souls and Personalities. There will be small and large works available as well as hand printed cards. This is a free event but for your convenience cash, e-transfer, debit tap and credit cards are all accepted when a purchase is made.

This August will be the third year in a row that Maria is teaching screen printing in Lunenburg daily for a week. It’s a glorious time to be in Lunenburg, the weather, the town’s lovely atmosphere, the fantastic restaurants, the harbour, the cute houses… and of course the workshop space which is a fabulous wooden structure historical building that used to be a car dealership a long time ago.
