Event Description
LETTERPRESS PRINTED EPHEMERA 918 SHOW Opening reception October 18th 6-8PM Curated by Samford art professor Scott Fisk, this printmaking show will be highlighting artists from all over the world that work in the letterpress medium. Letterpress was used for centuries as a form of setting type for printed materials and it became obsolete as computers became the medium of choice for setting up pages for print. Artists recently have seen letterpress art emerging again as a favored art medium because of the visual appeal of wood and metal type printed on paper as well as the hands-on approach of designing posters and other artwork.
