FOMO ISLAND
 is a series of prints that explore Canadian identity, master narratives, and cultural spectacle within a Newfoundland context. The work draws from Amery’s personal experiences as an artist from the mainland, and investigates juxtaposed symbols of an island paradise versus the reality of living on an island in the North Atlantic.

Last year (2014) was our 40th anniversary! (Wow, right?)

In celebration of this huge milestone for SMP, we commissioned 5 artists – each unique, celebrated, and with their own historical relationship with the Printshop – to create 5 original works of art. The results exceeded our expectations and then some.
