    St. Michael’s Printshop Celebrates 40th Anniversary with a Steamroller Printmaking Spectacular. SMP’s 40th anniversary offers an opportunity to celebrate SMP's cultural impact and influence on the artistic community over the past four decades. SMP has planned a schedule of events (see attached calendar) where the community at large can join in the celebration. One exciting event marking this auspicious year is our Steamroller Printmaking Spectacular! This event will be happening Lakeside, on the Dominion Parking Lot, from 6-9 p.m. on Regatta Eve (August 5). We are going to be employing a Steamroller as part of a printmaking method called “linocut”. Using various carving tools (basically different types of knives and gouges), an image is carved into a large piece of basic, everyday linoleum (the kind you find in your kitchen). In celebration of a beautiful St. John’s summer and all the city has to offer, we have opted to do a Regatta scene. For more information, check out the Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/276355719214593/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular
