Possible Worlds is pleased to announce the opening of a new graphic art exhibition exploring real and fictitious worlds, now and for the future. A project of Canadian visual and music artist Jon Vaughn, Realms II shines a light on the work of emerging creative talent in contemporary print, illustration, digital drawing and comic arts from across the globe.

The first stop of this travelling exhibition will be at Possible Worlds in Ottawa. For this showing, Realms II will feature prints by 23 emerging artists from eight countries who are consistently producing fresh and engaging work. Each artist was invited to create pieces that reflect or comment on imaginative, personal or intimate universes. While drawing is often the trajectory for the works, the artists express themselves in a multitude of ways using a diverse range of media: risograph, silkscreen, ink, or by digital methods.

Possible Worlds will also play host to the launch of the Realms II anthology, a companion publication which features the illustrative work of the 100+ artists who have contributed to this project.

This exhibition marks the first showing of work by each participating artist in Ottawa or in Canada.
