Join Artsy Fartsy Art Gallery in the front yard on Saturday August 20 as we enjoy some of Katherine’s latest works. Here is some information about Katherine and Meridian Press:
Katherine Case is a poet, printmaker and former Peace Corps volunteer. Her poetry has appeared in numerous national publications and her linoleum sculptures have illustrated books and boards, for which she has collaborated with poets such as Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Kay Ryan and Chana Bloch.
Katherine has taught book arts and letterpress printing for nearly a decade at the Academy of Art University, Nevada Museum of Art, San Francisco Center for the Book, and Sierra Nevada College. She owns and operates Meridian Press in Reno, Nevada, where she publishes limited edition poetry books, boards, stationery and linoleum prints.
At Meridian Press, high on the big hill of the Truckee River in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Katherine hand-types metal and prints on an antique Vandercook SP-15 proof press. It is inspired by traditional textile patterns from Africa, Asia and the Pacific; poetry and music; of her two young children and the diverse and abundant landscapes of the Reno-Tahoe area.
Artsy Fartsy is located at 405 N. Nevada Street and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
