The Weekend {list}


Monoprint by Jim Sherraden

American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print
Smithsonian traveling exhibition, The Art of Hatch Show Print, celebrates a time-honored graphic art tradition through the work of Nashville's Hatch Show Print, one of the nation's oldest and continuously printing shops. While Hatch's name is synonymous with the music business, its posters promoting football games, vaudeville shows, state fairs, stock car races, and picture shows reflect the breadth of American popular culture.

Stop by the VAC on Friday night to get two hours of hands on instruction in Raku (traditional Japanese pottery firing), Wheel Throwing, or Letterpress Printing for all skill levels. For a small fee you can test out a new medium and decide if you want to invest in a full course.  I've taken two classes at the VAC over the past few years and my investment was well worth the price and time.
