Perhaps it is partly a reaction to our ever evolving digital world but a few years back one might say that Letterpress printing was a dying craft. It has had a revival and validation in the art world. There is something so beautiful about taking old wood or metal type, methodically setting it, inking it, and printing it on a machine that was made before your Grandma was born.
Join us, Bare Knuckle Arts on May 4th MMoCA Spring Gallery night to celebrate the handmade paper and letterpress prints created by Professor Kerri Cushman. Cushman is an artist and educator at Longwood University in Virginia, who specializes in handmade paper, artist books, and printmaking.
Come check out the type hype with refreshments and an art activity for the kids from 5-9pm at Bare Knuckle Arts, 1949 Winnebago St. Madison WI
