Michael Myers Exhibit

Join North Bay Letterpress Arts this coming weekend, November 14-15 from noon-5pm for a rare showing of the work of the brilliant 1970s artist/illustrator Michael Myers.

The event will take place at Iota Press, 925d Gravenstein Hwy. South, Sebastopol, CA, and will feature over 40 prints recently made from Myers' original linoleum blocks, which will also be part of the exhibit. The carving has to be seen to appreciate its extreme virtuosity.

Myers worked with Holbrook Teter and others in a radical printing group called Zephyrus Image, which started in San Francisco in the early 1970s, moved to the hills north of Healdsburg, and ended when Myers was tragically killed in an accident in 1982. Most of his work was created in combination with letterpress printing of poems, posters, & politically sharp ephemera.
