Bryce McCloud: Invasion USA


Letterpress, the art of carving images into blocks that are inked and transferred onto paper, is an old and often neglected printing technique. Bryce McCloud has sought to keep the old-school tradition alive. After inheriting printing equipment from his uncle, McCloud founded the Nashville, Tennessee-based studio, Isle of Printing. Works are patriotically nostalgic yet modern, and include images ranging from a tribute to Johnny Cash, a thoughtful Abraham Lincoln, and a triumphant skyscraper with a gloomy cloud hanging over it. This Saturday during the opening reception (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.), art will invade the street—or rather, the air—when partiers are invited to release a helium balloon, each with a printed soldier attached—distributing letterpress art throughout Minneapolis.
