Up for Auction - Copper Plate Etchings by Gary Sim

Further to our upcoming book auction on November 13, 2010, here are the two etchings donated by Alcuin member Gary Sim. The pair of images is titled Savary Suite.

WATER TAXI by Gary Sim
6" high by 14" wide (150 mm by 360 mm)
This is a view of the wharf at Savary Island, British Columbia,
as the water taxi arrives from Lund on a quiet morning.

6.5" high by 14" wide (165 mm by 360 mm)

This is a view of the south shore at Savary Island, British Columbia,
looking to the west across Georgia Strait towards Vancouver Island.

Both are very fine etchings, produced to the highest standards, and part of a series limited to 30 prints. From the artist's description:

The edition consists of 30 prints on BFK Rives paper, 300 gsm, etched, proofed, and printed at New Leaf Editions on Granville Island. All prints are editioned, titled, and signed by the artist in pencil, with artist's monogram and date in the plate lower right. All prints are blindstamped with the New Leaf chop lower right.
This is a great opportunity to acquire some fine local artwork. Just another reason we hope to see you at our annual book auction!
