Katherine Case of Meridian Press is the featured artist in the Gallery at Copper Cat Studio for the months of March and April. Join us for an artist meet and greet, Sunday April 15th from 3-5pm, with free print making demos!
At Meridian Press, up the hill from the hill from the Truckee River in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Katherine carves linoleum blocks, hand sets metal type, and prints on an antique SP-15 Vandercook proof press. She calls up inspiration from the traditional textile patterns of Africa, Asia and the Pacific; from poetry and music; and from the diverse and abundant landscapes of the Reno- Tahoe area. Katherine is a poet, printmaker and former Peace Corps Volunteer. Her poetry has appeared in numerous national publications and her linoleum carvings have illustrated books and broadsides, for which she has collaborated with poets such as Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Kay Ryan, Chana Bloch and Jennifer K. Sweeney. Katherine has taught book arts and letterpress printing for nearly a decade at the Academy of Art University, the Nevada Museum of Art, the San Francisco Center for the Book and Sierra Nevada College. Katherine owns and operates Meridian Press in Reno, Nevada, where she publishes poetry chapbooks, broadsides, stationery and limited-edition linoleum-cut prints.
Join us for a meet and greet with Katherine, see her new work and watch as she gives free print making demos.
