Catherine has been busy for the last month — actually, it’s been two months — preparing for her contribution to Art in the Open on August 25th: you can’t take a step around our house these days without tripping over some sort of woodland creature or another.
When Henk van Leeuwen tweeted this morning that galleries downtown, including the one here at The Guild under the Reinventorium, would be open late that night too, I reasoned that it was time to get in on the fun, and so an email here and a phone call there and suddenly I’m doing my own art out in the open.
Type in the Open
will run from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
on August 25, 2012
in the basement of The Guild
(enter through the gallery at 111 Queen Street)
I’ll be demonstrating my 1915 Golding Jobber No. 8 letterpress (formerly of Campbell’s Printing in Tryon) as well as the smaller Adana Eight Five (formerly of Prince County Hospital in Summerside), talking about printing with wood and metal type, and sending everyone out the door with something letterpress-printed to take home.
Catherine and Peter. Me all alone in the dark corner of the night!
You left me without people„!
And what to do?
Don’t worry, don’t worry: we won’t leave you alone!
I do not have anything to do on August 25.
