"Behind the Platen" exhibit
the Design Division at La Roche College will partner with AIGA Pittsburgh and Big Press Little Press to host “Behind the Platen,” an exhibition celebrating the legacy of letterpress printing. The exhibition will be open daily to the public from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the Cantellops Art Gallery at La Roche College’s main campus in the North Hills. “Behind the Platen” will showcase the range of letterpress work done by shops and individuals in the Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio area. The exhibit also will educate its audience about the history of the medium through development of current day trends, and demonstrate how the medium is being explored and utilized in our contemporary design culture. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, the exhibition will kickoff at 7 p.m. with a lecture by Bob Kelemen, an accomplished printer and educator whose letterpress work has been recognized in regional and national competitions. Mr. Kelemen will speak on the use of letterpress as a tactile learning tool for design and will put into context how letterpress is explored in our art and design culture.
