Altar de Posada at NBLA

Presented by North Bay Letterpress Arts at North Bay Letterpress Arts, Sebastopol CA

Nov 02 - 28
Altar de Posada at NBLA

Join us for a month-long celebration of one of Mexico’s most iconic printmakers, José Guadalupe Posada.

You are invited to our press this November. We have plenty of open house dates, workshops etc. There is an opening celebration on Dia de Los Muertos from 3-8pm with live printing, original artwork, a community ofrenda to Posada and live music from 6-8pm.  Additionally there is one special night I think many would enjoy. We are honored to have Jim Nikas of the Posada Art Foundation along with Art Hazelwood come up and have a conversation about the life and legacy of José Posada. There will be a preview of a documentary they produced, live printing with original plates from the collection which the guests can take home. As well we have original prints and chapbooks for guests to view up close, much closer than most museum and such.

As its a fund raiser event, we will be raffling off some nice prints and things at end of the night. Just this week, Ada Limon’s agent sent some signed books and letterpress prints that sold out on the Library of Congress website, so collecting some really good amazing stuff!
