Limited Edition: A Rock Poster Art Show is a celebration of handmade concert posters. The exhibit will be on display at Ore Dock Brewing Co. throughout the month of June in the upstairs community space. All of the posters in the show were printed by hand using the screen printing technique. Screen printing requires the artist to apply each layer separately; one color at a time, one poster at a time. This makes each print an individual, unique work of art.
Handmade concert posters play a unique role in modern popular culture. The poster becomes a relic of a one-night-only or limited-engagement event. It is a tactile representation of the memories shared by those lucky enough to attend, but approachable enough to be appreciated by fans of the music, art, or craft.
Please join us Friday, June 24, at the Ore Dock for an Artists Reception and Live Screen Printing Demo where we’ll share how these unique posters are produced. Posters will also be available for sale. The reception is free and open to the public.
