Connection & Communication Postcard - Jill Ho-You
This postcard by August Klintberg was created as part of our inaugural Student-Led Initiative, entitled Connection & Communication Postcard Project
Jill Ho-You is an Assistant Professor in Print Media at the Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary, AB, Canada. Her practice explores the intersection of trauma, embodied memory, and the environment through a mixture of print media, bioArt, installation, and drawing. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and The New Gallery in Calgary, AB. She has participated in numerous group shows such as at the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, Japan; International Print Center New York, USA; and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, ROC.
About this Postcard Project
This project features AUArts student work along side the work of faculty and staff in a set of letterpress printed postcards under the theme of connection and communication, with the intention of building community during the pandemic.
4 student designs and 4 faculty/staff designs were selected to produce a total of 1000 letterpress printed postcards (125 of each design) using A/P's Vandercook SP15 Proofing Press.
This inaugural Student-Led Initiative was developed and coordinated by Sam Rollo together and James Boychuk-Hunter in association with Galerie Gaulin. Grant funding to support artist fees and materials was generously provided by the Student's Association (AUART-SA).
Each postcard is available for sale to generated funding toward future Student-Led Initiatives between AUArts and A/P to pay for artist fees and materials. 100% of proceeds from postcard purchases will go toward this purpose.
About A/P's Annual Student-Led Initiative:
These projects support and celebrate students while fostering their connections with A/P as a community resource to further their printmaking practice during and beyond their degree program.
