Last week a crate failed to arrive for installation at the Edmonton Print International 2008. There was some concern given EPI had paid the airfare for the Finnish artist, Annu Vertanen, to install the wall-sized piece. Since the competitive international exhibition is organized by the non-for profit Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists (SNAP), such a bust would tough.

The crate eventually showed up, and was installed in record time. The scare was just one of many pieces that have fallen into place to make the exhibition a reality. After five years of work, Walter Jule, the general secretary for EPI 2008, says they’re ready to present a show that stands up in international print community.

“Our byline for the show is ‘A Celebration of the Printed Image,'” says Jule. “We just want to show Edmonton this is the breadth of what’s going in contemporary print expression around the world, and ask what do you think.”
