“New Impressions” is an international, juried exhibition to showcase exploration and creativity with letterpress printing techniques. From this age-old tradition, we strive to challenge and inspire artists to continue the love of printing.
This call attracted 254 diverse entries from around the globe. The final 42 works on display are from artists in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Uruguay, and the United States. This is the fifth year of the New Impressions exhibition; it was juried by Dafi Kühne, graphic designer and letterpress print maker from Glarus, Switzerland; Mary Mashburn, graphic designer, owner and letterpress printer at Typecast Press; and Jessica Spring, letterpress printer and book artist at Springtide Press in Tacoma, Washington.
The letterpress printed exhibition poster was collaboratively designed by Nick Larson and Stephanie Carpenter. The catalog was also designed by Nick. The two items are priced separately.
