Cultural icons are dying left and right, a reality TV star has won the US presidential election, and the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. This MUST be the End of Times! With all the chaos around, people are depending on us for a light in the darkness, some sign of hope, and a reminder of the good things in life and what is within our grasp.
End of Times is a project that began in 2012 with the first print exchange. This is the sequel and combines 20 letterpress printers from before (2012) and 21 printers from now (2017) that will bring forth a new and exciting collection of prints relating to perseverance. Letterpress Printers from around the world will be creating an edition of 80 (8 x 10 inch) prints that capture their personal styles and reactions to the current world climate.
Each printer created an edition of work that was collected into multiple sets and put together at Bruno Press, in St. Joseph, MN. A collection of 41 prints will be on display at Soo Visual Arts Center for End of Times 2: The Time is Now (An International Broadside Exchange).
