Shop talk: 2021 Visiting Artist Series
Thursday, July 15
6pm – 8pm MDT
Online session held through Zoom
This summer SNAP has reimagined our Visiting Artist in Residence program to invite 3 print-artists from outside of our community to engage online with SNAP’s membership. Enjoy a studio tour and inside look into each artist’s practice during these online sessions. There will be time to ask questions and have discussions with the artists to connect further.
Meanwhile…Letterpress, a trans/queer owned letterpress collaborative which resists erasure through the power of print will be the second online presentation session for the Shop Talk: 2021 Visiting Artist Series. Meanwhile…Letterpress is located in Central Illnois and managed by Kadin Henningsen, a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working on 19th century American literature and book history using a transgender studies framework. On Thursday, July 15 from 6pm – 8pm MDT, Kadin will be giving a tour of Meanwhile…Letterpress’ printshop as well as showing artwork and the relationship with trans history. There will be printing demonstrations on the Washington Hand Press and on the Chandler and Price Treadle operated press and an exciting demonstration of how to use a laser engraver to make accessible and quick wood type.
All are welcome to join in this online presentation to learn more about Meanwhile…Letterpress and to engage in conversation with the artist. Trans and queer community members are encouraged to attend as Meanwhile…Letterpress is eager to connect about possible collaborative projects in the future!
