Tomorrow at PRESS: Letterpress as a Public Art Project the third show This One Goes to ELEVEN opens. It’s been an incredible summer of art making and art teaching for me, and this show shows the fruits of the labor of a number of really special people. Jason Peabody, Associate Gallery Manager; Pam Buchanan, Carrie Converse and Emily Cohane-Mann, aka PRESS & Co. all have incredible work on display. PRESS & Co. are really responsible for much of what happens at PRESS, from making sure it opens on time, to counting visitors, folding paper, cleaning floors, and really more! I am so grateful for their hardwork and devotion to this project of mine. They believe in it and themselves, and made art this summer that gets at the heart of their own explorations.
I have new work as well, including my series of images “The Prints that Live Under the PRESS,” A Thread Past, (featuring some really wonderful found papers that I hope someone might know of their origins), letterpress and linocuts and some artist books. It’s been productive. Really productive. I hope you get the opportunity to see all of this great work.
The opening is from 6-9 p.m. 105 Main Street, North Adams.
Here’s a preview of some of my images.
