Born in Chicoutimi in 1954, Guy Langevin studied at the Université du Québec in Trois-Rivières, from 1974 to 1977, and immediately began his career as a professional artist. He comes into contact with printmaking and engraving in his early years.

Mostly known for his work in mezzotint, he has given several master classes in various countries and has more than sixty individual exhibitions to his credit. He has participated in more than 350 group exhibitions, including his selection in nearly 250 international exhibitions and biennials.

His career as engraver has been marked by several awards, including the Bharat Bhavan Grand Prix in India (2006) and the Guanlan Biennial International Prize, in China (2009); the 1st prize of the Urals Triennial in Russia (2013), the prize of the City of Ploiesti in Romania (2013), the Prize for exceeding the technical limits of the International Ekaterinburg Mezzotint Festival in Russia (2013), the award Graver Maintenant in France (2017), the first prize of the Miniprint of Kazanlak in Bulgaria (2014) and a prize for his contribution to printmaking of the Splitgraphic in Croatia (2015). In 2017, the first prize of the Rosario Miniprint is given to him Argentina. His work has also received several honorable mentions.

His expertise is sought for several juries, both in Canada and internationally. He has received several grants from various levels of government and has directed more than a dozen artist residencies in several countries, including France, Belgium, the Czech Republic, China and Japan.

For the last few years, Guy Langevin has devoted himself to teaching, first at the Collège d’enseignemement général et professionnel of Trois-Rivières, but also at the Royal Academy of Wallonia, in Belgium.

He is one of the founders of Atelier Presse Papier and of the Biennale internationale d’estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières.

Canadian-born Tracy Templeton was raised in southern Saskatchewan on a small grain farm. Much of her early work chronicles the abandoned rural homesteads that characterize the prairie. Often derived from personal moments of struggle or unfolding change, her work expands from this intimate point of departure to encompass larger cultural issues and commonalities across the human experience. Templeton became the Head of Printmaking at Indiana University in 2013. Previously, she taught at Southern Oregon University, the University of Alberta, the University of Regina, and Illinois State University. Her work has been widely exhibited across the United States and throughout the world, including more than 150 exhibitions in such countries as Canada, Mexico, England, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, China, Bulgaria, Poland, Russia, Japan, Malaysia, and South Korea. Templeton won Honorary Mention at the Seoul Print Biennial and third place in the Great Canadian Printmaking Competition in addition to being awarded numerous artist grants.

Specializing in photographic etching, she has lectured extensively on the technique and her artwork at such institutions as Warsaw Academy of Art in Poland; Anchor Graphics, Chicago; University of Tennessee, Knoxville; Kansas City Art Institute; Lane Community College in Oregon; and Duke University.

Templeton earned her MFA from the University of Alberta and her BFA from the University of Regina, where she graduated with Distinction and The Riddell Award in Fine Arts. Her prints appear in more than thirty different collections worldwide, and her work has been published in more than sixty different books, magazines, catalogs, and journals.

Born in 1975 in Rouen, Ariane Fruit first focuses on her drawing practice before shifting towards photography. In 2000, she receives a laboratory photography degree from the École des Gobelins in Paris. A few years later, she discovers engraving and experiments with many estamping techniques. This allows her to reinterpret her photography work, as captured with the help of precise devices. She notably explores the theme of the city through several series on public transportation andwastelands. She has been awarded many distinctions, including the GRAViX prize in 2017 for her linocut series La meute. Since 2013, she works in a collective workshop in the Goutte-D’Or neighborhood in Paris.
