[BKARTS] Yellow Barn Press Exhibition opening 1/30 7 pm



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Tomorrow night, 7 p.m. is the opening for "Inside the Yellow Barn:
Exploring a Contemporary Fine Press," a major exhibition featuring books,
ephemera, original wood engravings and blocks from John DePol (who has
worked with the Press since 1985), manuscripts, correspondence, and other
materials related to this wonderful press from Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Some of these items are from the John Wilson Room collection, however,
most of these materials are borrowed from Portlander Jack Walsdorf, who
has had a long association with the Press.

We are extremely fortunate that Press proprietor Neil Shaver and Jack
Walsdorf will be attending the opening, which is on Thursday, January 30,
2003, at 7 p.m..

Neil Shaver has printed books of poetry, essays, and books on books since
1979.  His tributes to John DePol, and his works on the Kelmscott Press,
Red Ozier Press, The Pickering Press, and Stephen Saxe's work on the
American Iron Hand Presses are important works of printing scholarship, in
addition to being stunning works of book design that use the finest of
letterpress printing.

The exhibition will be from January 30, 2003 until March 9, 2003 in the
Collins Gallery, Multnomah County Library, Central Library, 801 SW 10th
Avenue, Portland, Oregon.
