“Books and Broadsides” celebrates the art form of hand letterpress printing in books and single-sheet broadsides (usually poems or short prose works presented as limited-edition art prints or posters). LCC English instructor, poet, and hand letterpress printer Joseph Green has assembled works by some of the most prominent hand letterpress printers in the Northwest: Mare Blocker, from McCall, Idaho; Ian Boyden, from Walla Walla; Elsie Vassdal Ellis, from Bellingham; Rebecca Gilbert and Barb Tetenbaum, both from Portland; Sandy Tilcock, of Eugene; Paul Hunter and Jessica Spring, both from Seattle; Catherine Michaelis, of Vashon Island; Samuel and Sally Green, from Waldron Island; and C. Christopher Stern and Jules Remedios Faye, of Sedro-Woolley. On Friday, November 23, at 10:00 AM, Joseph Green will moderate a panel of four of the artists. Their discussion will encompass the points of entry, the traditions (from the printing trade, as well as from fine art and literature), and the ideas and aspirations of the participants. Light refreshments will follow at noon. The Art Gallery is located in Main Building, Room 115, at Lower Columbia College, 1600 Maple Street, Longview, Washington.
