First Friday on Pearl Street : Small Press
Tonight! It's First Friday October 7th - Boulder Arts & Crafts welcomes 9 local artists participating in "small press: the art of letterpress". The show will run through November 6th. We are pleased to have a Chandler & Price Pilot Press in the window!
This show celebrates modern approaches to the time honored art of typesetting and small press printmaking. The artists are: David Ashley, Allison Bozeman, Rick Griffith, Alicia McKim, Kay Moller, Tom Parson, Ray Tomasso, Gail Watson & Matthew Winheld.
A percentage of sales will benefit the Book Arts League, a local group dedicated to preserving the arts of bookbinding, paper making and letterpress printing. From its home base on an historic farm in Lafayette, the Book Arts League offers hands on classes in all the book arts. Letterpress fanatics will be interested in attending the Open House at the Ewing Farm in Lafayette this Saturday October 1st. Visit bookartsleague.org for more information.
