Volume 2 MTL

Announcing the return of our new annual gathering around Art and the Book, Volume 2 MTL — applications for tables are now open!

ARCMTL also made the news! Check out this report by Radio-Canada that includes a visit to our archive centre (halfway through) and a chat with longtime colleague and poster artist Pat Hamou, who is a regular at our Grande print and poster art fair — which took place just this past spring as part of the Montreal Printed Arts Festival, held by ARCMTL and our partners Atelier Circulaire and Zocalo.

Grande 2019 brought together more than 50 artists and organizations selling posters and printed art. You can see photos of the Grande and its artists on our image blog here, and more photos of the overall Montreal Printed Arts Festival here.

Print Augmented, a Distroboto project, was also presented by ARCMTL as part of the festival. You can see a photo gallery of images taken during these workshops here as well as a guide to creating AR art prints on our blog here.
