Artist Talk: Chris Fritton
WHEN: Thurs, Oct 13 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
WHERE: Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre, ACAD
Chris Fritton is the Itinerant Printer. Since 2015, he has been visiting letterpress print shops across America and Canada, producing unique prints at each venue culled from their idiosyncratic collections of wood type, metal type, cuts, ornaments, and polymer plates.
These prints will be mailed back to followers and supporters of the project as postcards (and care packages) from the road.
Chris will talk to the students about his work, the art of letterpress printing and its history, and its current renaissance at his only stop in Calgary.
