HOLLOWS AND KNOBS | PRINT MEDIA OF APPALACHIA
April 21 – May 29, 2023
OPENING EVENT: APRIL 22, 3-5PM
In a time of infinite feeds and endless extraction, print media and Appalachian community endures. The intimate bonds forged in producing a homespun zine, blazing a trail or standing up to a multinational company speaks to a sense of rootedness to place and its people.
This show celebrates the materiality and resiliency of the print medium as a physical manifestation of embodied community here in Western Pennsylvania, Northern West Virginia and wider Appalachia.
The zines, photobooks, journals, books, posters and other print ephemera in Hollows and Knobs showcases the breadth of publishing creativity from artists and printmakers, both based or inspired by the Appalachian region.
