Nature in Relief: Letterpress Graphics
October – December 2010

Elinor Nissley is the current Artist-in-Residence at The Theodore Payne Foundation (TPF). An architectural designer and the creative force behind Krank Press, Elinor will spend her residency transforming the organic shapes of California natives into graphic forms. To do this, Elinor is carving printing blocks based on her drawings of plants from the TPF nursery. Elinor prints all of her work on a 1956 Chandler & Price Craftsman letterpress.

Elinor has a Bachelor of Arts in printmaking from Rice University in Texas and a Master of Architecture from UC Berkeley.

You are invited to visit The Theodore Payne Foundation to view Elinor’s prints. Meet Elinor in-person and learn about printmaking during the annual Fall Festival & Plant Sale. Elinor will be on-site Saturday October 8 and Saturday October 15.

The exhibition Nature in Relief: Letterpress Graphics will be on view through December 2010. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
