Letterpress Exhibition and Fair

Gerding Theater at the Armory (map) Northwest
Nov. 5-Dec. 31 2009

free

An ongoing exhibition of over 15 local print/press artists in honor of Portland Center Stage's production of Ben Franklin: Unlugged, and Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack. The two month-show is punctuated with two special events, a capital First Thursday reception and a "Power of the Press" fair on November 7th, from 10am-1pm. The fair offers letterpress demonstrations, a screening of the short documentary Farewell Etaoin Shrdlu, about the last of the New York Times' hot-metal type days, and "Ben Franklin-themed interactive activities" which I can only assume means running, aluminum foil-covered, through a storm.
