AVA and The Open Press are partnering to bring to Chattanooga an exhibit celebrating printmaking, letterpress and book arts featuring a diverse group of 20+ local, regional, and national artists. This show, curated by The Open Press, seeks to introduce visitors to these media with the hope that they will leave with a better understanding of the art forms. This show will open in conjunction with Gallery Hop on Saturday, September 12.
The Open Press is a letterpress, printmaking and book arts cooperative based in Chattanooga, TN. Their aim is to provide access to a unique and under-utilized artistic resource in Chattanooga, and to build a community of fine artists and craftspeople around this equipment and knowledge.
