Hamilton Ink Spot is pleased to welcome Louisville-based letterpress printer Brad Vetter for an artist's talk on Tuesday, April 25th. The talk will coincide with a pop-up exhibit of Brads work in our gallery.
Brad is a designer, artist, educator and master printer in the field of letterpress printmaking. After studying graphic design at Western Kentucky University, Brad spent eight years honing his craft at the legendary Hatch Show Print in Nashville, TN, one of the oldest continually operating letterpress shops in the country.
After Hatch, Brad became an independent printer and designer under the mantle Brad Vetter Design. Bouncing between 18th and 21st century technology and techniques, he continues to hand print rock-and-roll posters while also adding more digital design to his repertoire. His print work has been shown in such notable venues as the San Francisco MoMA, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Columbia College Center for Book and Paper, and the Danish Museum of Media.
