Solo show at Blue Spiral 1

If you've been following my tweets and Facebook posts lately, you've seen a few sneak peaks of prints that I've been working on for the past few months. Finally, you can see the finished prints in full at my upcoming solo show, The Adventures of Prudence and Patience, at Blue Spiral 1 Gallery in Asheville, NC!

They'll be on display in the Small Format Gallery from August 1 through October 5, 2013. Join me and other artists for a gallery-wide opening reception Thursday, August 1, 5-8pm. (Blue Spiral 1 is located in downtown Asheville: 38 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801.)

Type on the Cob

Just returned from an amazing weekend of complete letterpress immersion! I spent last week in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, where we had the third Ladies of Letterpress conference: the Type on the Cob wayzgoose. It was three days full of printing and printing-related workshops and presentations, including typecasting, cutting wood type, wood engraving, and a screening of Linotype: The Film. Here I am sitting on the Miehle press with Kseniya Thomas, my partner-in-crime in the daily workings of Ladies of Letterpress, and our gracious hosts at Printer's Hall at Midwest Old Threshers, Rick Von Holdt, Jim Daggs, and Steve Alt.
