20 Years of Horse & Buggy Press and Friends

When: June 15-Aug. 7 2016

20 YEARS OF HORSE & BUGGY PRESS (AND FRIENDS)

In this must-read retrospective, the past twenty years are an open book. That's how long Dave Wofford has been letterpress printing art tomes, broadsides, bookmarks, and other paper pleasures—one at a time, by hand. He founded Horse & Buggy Press in Raleigh, but, for the past ten years, it's lived at the Bull City Arts Collaborative, which Wofford cofounded, on Foster Street. The space has grown into Durham's gallery scene, as was only natural. Rather than simply doing work for hire, Wofford collaborates with writers and artists to produce beautiful, minutely tailored books in small runs, their content ranging from abstract photojournalism to translations of Rilke. You can read them all in this exhibit at Cassilhaus, ensconced in a custom-made reading environment courtesy of various Horse & Buggy friends, including leather chairs by Scott Howell and tables by Al Frega. The exhibit also includes dozens of framed artworks and the debuts of two new book projects. This reception is your last chance to see the show in this intimate setting (RSVP to lastchance@cassilhaus.com for directions) before it moves to CAM Raleigh in mid-June. —Brian Howe
