Have you ever dreamed of making art on a rock? Have you ever fantasized of drawing on the smoothest surface known to man? Have you ever wished you could make a copy of your most beloved drawing in any colour, over and over again?
Have you, dear friends, ever heard of lithography? It’s the art of drawing on limestone and then printing the most beautiful prints imaginable.
Too good to be true? Nope, the stone never lies. So come on in, bring your muscles, caffeinated beverages and let’s get printing!
Artist Bio: Helena Rakic is an artist and printmaker living in Toronto, Canada. She studied at Laval University specialising in lithography. After having graduated, she moved back to Hamilton where she printed at Centre3 print studio in various print media. She was selected for an artist residency at the Kala Art Institute in Berkley, CA, where she printed several lithographs, which were exhibited in Improbable Anatomy and The Magic Show at the Members Gallery at Centre 3 in Hamilton.

ACCESSIBILITY: Centre is partially physically accessible. We have a level entrance leading to our shop, information desk, galleries, washroom and traditional print studio. Unfortunately, we do not have automatic doors or an elevator. Our silkscreen studios and digital lab are only accessible by stairs. We are working toward becoming a physically accessible space in the future.
