Now Showing at 23 Sandy Gallery: Broadsides
Through March 14, 2015
Before books, before blogs and before broadcasts, there were broadsides.
Historically, single sheet broadsheet posters were ephemeral in nature. They were developed in the fifteenth century for royal proclamations, official notices and even advertisements. Today, broadsides hang at the intersection of art and literature. Letterpress printed broadsides are valued as fine art designed and printed by a
true craftsperson; but also as fine literature featuring stellar poetry or prose.
23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present a curated collection of broadsides in the gallery in through March 14, 2015. This show features many of your favorites from Sandy Tilcock's lone goose press and Knight Library Press, to new editions from Cathy DeForest, Chandler O'Leary and Jessica Spring. Also featuring two new works from Helen Hiebert. Her fresh-off the-press A Map to Now woven broadside is shown above.
