Fresh Impressions: Letterpress Printing in Contemporary Art
February 28 - March 20, 2008
Hoffman Gallery, Oregon College of Art & Craft
Curated by Inge Bruggeman and Heather Watkins

This exhibition will explore the relevance of letterpress printing in contemporary art, while seeking to define its significance to current artmaking practices. The show's premise is essentially a question: What voice does letterpress printing have that distinguishes itself from other mediums such as silkscreen, lithography, or digital printing? This exhibition will demonstrate a broad range of responses to this question, while creating a dialogue about the many ways letterpress printing forms and informs new and innovative work in contemporary art.

A small catalog will be published.

Submission Requirements:
1)Submissions may be all letterpress printed, but work that combines letterpress printing with other mediums (i.e. silkscreen, photography, drawing, painting, etc.) and/or that uses letterpress printing in three dimensional/sculptural work is strongly encouraged.
2)CV or Resume
3) Up to 4 works, maximum of 8 images, either digital or slides
4) List of work
5) Brief artist's statement
6) $10 entry fee made out to OCAC
7) Self addressed, stamped envelope for return of slides/CD
