Print it: Hamilton Wood Type is coming to Lawton
The Lawton Gallery in Theatre Hall is welcoming the exhibit “Hamilton Wood Type” on Thursday (Sept. 10) with a gallery reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. including the guest curator’s talk at 5 p.m. The curator, Jim Moran, is director of the Two Rivers museum, famous among graphic designers and certain art-lovers for its great variety of handmade fonts both practical and fanciful. The Lawton exhibition runs through Oct. 1 and features a collection of wood type alongside various letterpress printed posters created by Hamilton Manufacturing. Additionally, Moran will be giving a brief slideshow presentation before the opening, discussing the history of wood type and the museum in Studio Arts Room 411 at 3:30 p.m. that day. All Lawton Gallery events are free and open to the public. For details, visit the Lawton website, or contact Interim Curator Laura Schley at (920) 465-2916.
