The art of printmaking has a long and storied history and continues to serve as a medium for innovation and expression in contemporary art. Edmonton, alongside cities from Europe and Asia, has emerged as a major centre for the study and research of printmaking due in large part to the contributions to the University of Alberta. Through the printmaking program, the collecting practise of the University of Alberta Museums Art Collection and unprecedented access to original works of art in the University of Alberta Museums Print Study Centre, Edmonton together with the University of Alberta has gained an international reputation as one of the foremost institutions in North America for the research, study, teaching and collecting print-based artwork.

A Little Bit of Infinity features works of art from the University of Alberta Museums Art Collection that celebrates the art, artists, collections and collectors on the continuum of printmaking.

This exhibition spans 600 years of history, includes over 130 local and international artists from 23 different countries and it is inspired by the twentieth anniversary of the University of Alberta Museums Print Study Centre. It is a time to pause, reflect, and celebrate Edmonton's extraordinary community of print art and artists - our little bit of infinity - and its impact on the world.
