Barbara Edwards Contemporary is pleased to present an historic retrospective of prints by the renowned Canadian/American artist Tim Zuck. Tim Zuck Prints: A Retrospective, brings together works spanning 25 years of printmaking (1983- 2009) and offers a comprehensive view of the artist’s printmaking within the context of his drawing and painting practice. Zuck’s command of the medium in a variety of processes including etching, photogravuer and lithography, conveys a profound stillness unique to his oeuvre.

Zuck earned a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) in 1971 and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia in 1972, both gathering places for an international group of conceptual artists. During his studies Zuck explored a range of process-oriented projects, including performance, film, video and photography, producing important works such as 100 Pennies (1971). He was an assistant professor at NSCAD from 1972 – 79, and during this time his focus turned increasingly to paintings. Zuck left NSCAD in 1979 to pursue painting full time at his studio, then located in Purcell’s Cove, Nova Scotia. From 2001 he has been an instructor at the Alberta College of Art & Design in Calgary. He now lives in Penetanguishine, Ontario and keeps a studio in Georgian Bay.

Tim Zuck has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including the internationally touring Tim Zuck: Learning to Talk (2002 – 3) and Tim Zuck: Still Life in Landscape (1997 – 8). His works have been exhibited at: the National Gallery of Canada; Art Gallery of Ontario; Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia; Yukon Arts Centre Gallery, Whitehorse; Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff; Back Sang Gallery, Seoul, Korea; Expo ‘93, Taejon, Korea and the Canadian Embassy Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan.

His works are held in numerous private collections and public institutions including the National Gallery of Canada, Canada Council Art Bank, Glenbow Museum, Art Gallery of Hamilton, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Vancouver Art Gallery, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Museum London and Art Gallery of Ontario, which also holds a fond of his ephemera.
