In Two Places is a printmaking exhibition which opens at Satellite Project Space on Dundas Street on Wednesday and features works by artists from the London area and Barbados where the exhibition will open simultaneously in St. George at the Brighton Storeroom gallery.

The exhibition features works by 16 artists from both countries – 10 from the London area and six from Barbados – sponsored by each country’s embassies as part of a cultural exchange.

“I’m from Barbados so I have a gallery connection there and it seemed like a natural thing to do,” said Jocelyn Gardner, Founder and Chairman of Print London.

“It allows us to meet other artists, see what they are doing, share and exchange ideas while reaching a wider audience.”
