Pop-Up Event with Gingerly Press

Friday, September 27, 2019 5-7 pm

Join us Friday, September 27 from 5-7 pm to learn more about the work of Lindsay Schmittle of Gingerly Press. This Pop-Up event will have an exhibition of letterpress printed posters, a shop, and a presentation. Her talk begins at 5:30 pm. Lindsay will share her process and tell us more about a special project she created, The Printed Walk: Georgia to Maine

The Printed Walk: Georgia to Maine began in the Fall of 2016 with a successful Kickstarter campaign. The campaign funded the Appalachian Trail thru-hike and the raw materials for the project. Lindsay hiked the entirety of the 2,190-mile trail from March 25, 2017 to September 11, 2017, treating her hike as a walking meditation and scavenger hunt, discovering inspiration in the small natural beauties along the trail.

Upon her return home to Gingerly Press, Lindsay designed and printed 22 posters, one for every 100 miles of the trail, celebrating the small beauties she discovered on her hike. Each design sizes at 14 x 18”, was produced in a signed limited edition of 70 prints, and includes the correlating written story, hiking statistics, and elevation map printed on the reverse.

The Friday Pop-up Event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.


If you want to learn from Lindsay sign up for her full-day workshop on Saturday, September 28. The workshop cost is $125 and includes supplies. Register today!
