About this Postcard Project
This project features AUArts student work along side the work of faculty and staff in a set of letterpress printed postcards under the theme of connection and communication, with the intention of building community during the pandemic.
4 student designs and 4 faculty/staff designs were selected to produce a total of 1000 letterpress printed postcards (125 of each design) using A/P's Vandercook SP15 Proofing Press.
This inaugural Student-Led Initiative was developed and coordinated by Sam Rollo together and James Boychuk-Hunter in association with Galerie Gaulin. Grant funding to support artist fees and materials was generously provided by the Student's Association (AUART-SA).
Each postcard is available for sale to generated funding toward future Student-Led Initiatives between AUArts and A/P to pay for artist fees and materials. 100% of proceeds from postcard purchases will go toward this purpose.
About A/P's Annual Student-Led Initiative:
