Second Saturdays Art Opening @ Art on the Trax with Emily Hancock

September 10, 2016 @ 16:00 - 18:00


St Brigid Press was born out of a passion for language: Emily Hancock has been reading and writing poetry since she was in elementary school, and worked as a bookseller for Stone Soup Books and Cafe in Waynesboro, Virginia for 6 years. In the Autumn of 2011, that life-long love of classic and contemporary literature began to discover its unique expression through the handcrafts of traditional letterpress printing and bookbinding. As she slowly acquired antique printing presses, type, and equipment, she studied the centuries-old techniques with master printers, through deep reading in the field, and a Winter Residency in Letterpress at Penland School of Crafts.  Since then, Emily has created books, journals, posters, prints, bookmarks, and coasters, saying, “I am enjoying each project in the Shop — it is an honor and a great pleasure to spend my days caring for language, and for the traditional handcrafts that bring the written word forth into being and share it.”

 Art on the Trax will present “Letter by Letter: Letterpress Prints from St. Brigid Press” by Emily Hancock during the month of September, with a Second Saturday Artist Reception on Saturday, September 10th.
 Please join us for our Second Saturday Opening Reception on September 10th. This reception is part of Crozet’s Second Saturday events and runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. We’ll be serving up The Art Box’s famous ice cream sundaes topped with fruit from local orchards.
All events are free and open to the public. Art on the Trax is located at Creative Framing and The Art Box, across from the Olde Crozet Train Station, 5784 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia.
