Wednesday – Saturday 11.30am- 5.00pm
Print maker Theresa Easton incites a direct, handwritten response from audiences with her emotive exploration of historical, social and politically driven forms of printed material. Broadsides and Broadsheets historically were single sheets of paper printed on one side with either ballads, announcing events, proclamations or advertisements, often pinned in taverns and cottages.
For Dear Angel, Easton’s broadsides and broadsheets respond to the growing discontent in the North East to the national austerity measures imposed on sections of the community by our current government. Quotes and paraphrase’s, rants and reminiscence by members of the public will be captured and reformed into hard copies and printed using tradition wooden type.
