Tacoma WAYZGOOSE 2014

24 Apr

Tacoma’s beloved printmaking festival is coming up quick!

Wayzgoose Letterpress & Book Arts Extravaganza
Sunday, April 27th from 11am – 4pm
King’s Books, 218 St Helens Ave.


One of Spaceworks’ newest participants Yoshiko Yamamoto & Bruce Smith of The Arts & Crafts Press will be offering people a chance to help print a keepsake card on a small tabletop press for you to take home. Plus, there will be editions of their fantastic “T is for Tacoma” letterpress poster available. www.artsandcraftspress.com

Amy McBride drove the steamroller to create this print by Charles Wright Academy Printmaking.

Steamroller prints!  For the sixth consecutive year, the Tacoma Arts Commission and Jessica Spring from Springtide Press will bring together original linoleum-cut designs created by various artists/groups in the community and smooosh them with a steamroller in front of your very eyes.

Prints from Tacoma Wayzgoose 2013. Artists are: Ric Matthies, Chandler O’Leary & Jessica Spring, Charles Wright Academy Printmaking, Pacific Lutheran University Printmaking.

The large 3′ x 3′ steamroller prints have made a bold and beautiful statement in the Woolworth windows in years past.  You can expect to see them again on display in the Woolworth windows May 15 – Aug 21, 2014, curated by Jessica Spring.  This year they have the big window on the corner of 11th & Broadway… expect a few surprises.

For the full list of Wayzgoose participants, and more information on the festival visit the King’s Books website.
