As part of Southern Graphics Conference International’s 2019 conference, Texchange, held at various institutions throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, I’m joining three of my graduate school colleagues to lead a demo on letterpress printing at our graduate school, University of North Texas.
Location: UNT Art Building, 1201 West Mulberry Street, Denton, TX 76201. Room ART 276
Time: Fri, Mar 8, 2019, 1–3pm
Presenters: Cat Snapp, Laura H. Drapac, Linda Lucia Santana, Christopher Wallace
Four professional artists reunite to letterpress print ephemera on the press they restored together as graduate students at the University of North Texas in 2011- a pivotal project for each member that jump started their art careers and small businesses. Under the guidance of Professor Lari R. Gibbons, they restored four inoperable letterpresses. Seven years later, these four former students, Laura H. Drapac, Linda Lucia Santana, Cat Snapp, and Christopher Wallace, will reunite at the University of North Texas to hold a Special Event and print letterpress ephemera on the remaining press still housed in UNT Printmaking, the Gordon floor model.
Please note that this demo is open to conference attendees only.
