End of Times

E of T 1.jpg

Live your life like yer days are numbered man, cause ya never know.

My name is Mary C. Bruno and I am a letterpress printer. When I say it like that I sound like an addict at a support group… well that is exactly what I am, and this, this is my support group.

My interns and I hatched the idea for organizing our own Broadside Exchange when we were looking over a packet of broadsides from a previous exchange I had been a part of. We brainstormed at length about a theme until I mentioned that this yes, on my birthday, is the potential end of the world (12/21/12).

So here we are, with the show up on the walls unframed and against a backdrop of world ending graffiti. It is more beautiful than I ever would have imagined, it makes me so incredibly proud to be a part of the amazing line up of talent. Thank you everyone who participated, I am speechless.
