July First Friday - Valerie Lucas (Bower Box Press)

Sunflowers by Valerie Lucas

FRIDAY, JULY 7TH | 6-8:30

Val Lucas, a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, runs Bowerbox Press, a letterpress and woodcut printing studio in rural Monkton, Maryland. She is inspired by the natural world and landscapes, wildlife and farm animals, and the history of letterpress printing. By combining the age-old traditions of hand-set metal and wood type with woodcut images, she creates prints, posters and cards that reflect her diverse interests. Reduction woodcut landscapes capture a broader view with loose marks and vibrant colors, while detailed woodcuts for posters and cards capture the beauty in the small details in nature.
