Art Opening This Thursday!
On Thursday, June 24th, 2010, 16 Penny Gallery will be hosting an art opening and exhibition of screenprints by The Cricket Press, inside 52.5 Records, at 561 King Street. The opening event will run from 6 PM to 8 PM and is free of charge and open to the public. The exhibition will run through mid-July 2010.
Brian and Sara Turner have been making posters for nearly a decade. In 2003, they started Cricket Press from a tiny studio in their home of Lexington, KY. Since then, they have created gig posters for hundreds of bands ranging from indie-rock to free-jazz, bluegrass to punk; as well as promotional work for events both local and national.
Together they have created their own unique and quirky vision of the world, translating their characteristic illustrations through the hand-printed processes of letterpress and screen-printing. When they’re not ruining their clothes slinging ink on posters, Cricket Press also spends a good deal of time on numerous design and illustration projects, as well as making various hand-printed goods and ephemera.
All of the pieces in the exhibition will be available for purchase, and Brian and Sara will be on hand the night of the opening to represent their work.
