OPPORTUNITY: Letterpress Printer / Book Artist / Artist-in-Residence

We offer a special opportunity for a printer or book artist to take over a
letterpress shop with potential to grow into a book art center. A
well-appointed, functional letterpress shop with Vandercook, Washington
hand press, type, and all necessary appurtenances, is currently in need of
a printer with energy and vision to create programs and activity.
The shop is located in a lively, city-sponsored art center in
Charlottesville, Virginia and is under the care of the Virginia Foundation
for the Humanities. No stipend or salary accompanies this position, but the
shop could support income-generating classes in all aspects of the book
arts. The position requires keeping the shop open and occupied 17 1/2 hours
a week, during business hours. Ownership of the shop will remain with its
current sponsors, but the artist would have 24-hour access to the studio.
The press is available immediately, but we are eager to have someone in
place soon.
Charlottesville is a prosperous university town, home to the University of
Virginia and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, in the foothills of the Blue
Ridge, about ten miles from the Shenandoah National Park . It is about two
hours and ten minutes from Washington DC by car. Charlottesville has a
thriving arts community (music, drama, performance, film, poetry) and
thousands of visitors come each spring to a Festival of the Book (also a
Virginia Foundation for the Humanities sponsored event) featuring writers
of local and international reputation. Opportunities for employment in
printing and publishing are readily available in the Charlottesville area.
Interested? Send your resume and a cover letter giving an idea of your
vision of your work as an artist or printer, and some idea of the classes
or public programs you would be willing to offer to: Attention: ABC
Committee, Johanna Drucker, c/o Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, 145
Ednam Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22903. The position will remain open until
filled, but applications will be evaluated starting March 1, 2001.
