Mule Gallery is excited to present Design On Press, a group show curated by Victoria Heifner of Milkfed Press. The show opens on January 11, 2019 and closes on February 22, 2019. A reception will be held on Friday, January 11 from 6-9pm.
Design On Press is a group show featuring the works of six Bay Area Printers, all with a unique common thread. This group offers an exciting blend of typography, art, design, and of course—letterpress printing. Between them are seasoned publishers, authors, poets, typographers, artists, and printers—yet they all came to letterpress printing as a simple way to communicate. Not one of them began their work in the computer realm.
This very fact has informed each artist’s sense of design from the very beginning. Limitations such as, “Do I have enough type to say what I’m trying to say?” or working with a particular piece of artwork created parameters which pushed creativity, boundaries, and made for some exciting work. Each artist represents a unique eye and perspective, and it is truly a pleasure to put them all together in the same show.
