The Print Work of Amos Kennedy
Created on Friday, 05 March 2010 21:23
Amos Kennedy of Gordo, Alabama, uses the traditional relief printmaking process and equipment to create exciting, thought-provoking artwork. Through assorted fonts, various type sizes and adventurous color combinations he supports political causes and advertises events. Amos and his letterpress are always a hit at the annual Alabama Book Festival, where children and adults alike enjoy crafting their own print creations. In conjunction with this year’s festival, to be held on April 17 at Old Alabama Town, we are featuring a collection of Amos Kennedy’s originals in our gallery. Available for viewing Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
