This Is The Way The World Ends
On Friday November 2, 2012, Carriage House Press students presented their installation and woodcut prints as part of the Blue Connection Gallery's After 5 Live spotlight artist event. The students decided to do a series of woodcut prints each one depicting their own particular vision of how the world might end according to the Mayan Calendar. Everything from a plague of locusts to a nuclear holocaust were thematically represented in the form of woodcut prints on both paper, and on canvas tote bags, for those wishing to "go out in style".
A Moving Truck Gallery
Carriage House Press students donned their hazmat suits and prepared the moving truck as a mobile gallery/installation space. Dylan Schietinger and Jessica Greenslade are putting the finishing touches on the Moving Truck Gallery.
Inside the Moving Truck Gallery
For those brave souls who dared to enter the loading truck, a melange of creepy old artifacts , along with the scattered woodcut prints were the reward.
Blue Connection Gallery windows postered over.
Of course, no respectful end of the world event would be complete without the appropriate propaganda poster campaign.
End of the World Reception
Gallery goers were curious about the End of The World, hence many interesting comments and discussions were a part of the evenings festivities. Here Derrick Sosinski and Lexie Snyder interact with the crowd.
