Three Letterpress Printers Walk into a Shed: The Renegade Letterpress Work of Felicia Rice, Theresa Whitehill, Zida Borcich
January 8, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Partners Gallery presents an exhibit of three guest artists taking place at the gallery in the historic Beacon Building in Mendocino in January and February 2022. The books, broadsides, and job work on display of these letterpress artists reside in the realm of book arts—a genre that encompasses all things BOOK. Each artist explores a different approach to letterpress, a medium born in the 1450s and in danger of extinction when these artists entered the field almost 50 years ago.
Felicia Rice’s collaborative artists’ books, Theresa Whitehill’s letterpress poetry broadsides, and Zida Borcich’s commercial job work embody a love of craft, a dedication to art, and a passion for communicating. As renegades, their work reflects perspectives on the radical technical, cultural, and political shifts of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Exhibit runs Thursday, January 6 through Sunday, March 6, 2022
