I’m proud to be a part of a new poster show called Paper Cuts: The Art and Science of Rock Posters that features Washington, DC area artists and venues posters. Paper Cuts will run from March 24 through April 25 at the Athenaeum in Old Town, Alexandria. Featuring a wide range of styles from a number of contemporary artists, the collection reflects the breadth and vitality of the DC Metropolitan area music scene.
My Dashboard Confessional poster (below) is among the posters featured in this DC-area posters art show.
To provide context to the art of these music posters, Paper Cuts will explore the science of the works by exhibiting artifacts from the process, including original drawings, sketches, studies, and printmaking ephemera. Additionally, the opening will feature live printmaking with Kristina Bilonick, where visitors can try their own hand at screenprinting!
Paper Cuts is organized by designer and printmaker Anthony Dihle, who also organized last year’s poster show Paper Jam at Civilian Art Projects, which surveyed the work of two dozen East Coast based poster artists.
Paper Cuts will feature the work of 16 poster artists including Hero Design Studio, Jay Ryan, John Foster, Marc Harkness, Zach Bryan, strawberryluna (that’s me!), Anthony Dihle, Todd Slater, Marq Spusta, Hatch Show Print, Dan Grzeca, Guy Burwell, Chris Cernoch, John Whitlock, Adam Saul, and Criminal Design
