SFCB Presents Roadworks Street Fair – Potrero Hill

You are invited to the 7th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Prints Street Fair! Using a three-ton construction steamroller and an unlikely letterpress bed—the street—a team of artists and printers will print large-scale linoleum carved block prints. In addition to the steamroller printmaking centerpiece, there will be 80+ artists, vendors, and organizations presenting a bazaar of fine and affordable wares.

Roadworks Street Fair takes …place on Sunday, September 19, 2010 from 12-5pm. The fair takes over Rhode Island Street between 16th and 17th Streets, and is FREE, with donations accepted at the gate.

The three featured steamroller artists are Gary Brewer, Sarah Newton, and Rik Olson. Their three-foot by three-foot large-scale linoleum carvings will be printed by the steamroller in limited editions and will be available for purchase.

In addition to the three featured artists, eighteen artists, including Michael Wertz, John Hersey, Megan Adie, Jenny Robinson, Ward Stuhmiller, and Gail Wight, have been selected to design and carve one-foot square pieces of linoleum under the theme of “Loteria,” to coincide with our current Austin / Burch Gallery exhibition, “LA Loteria: An Exploration of Identity.” These prints will be available for sale at a forthcoming event in November. The final component of the steamroller printing is the “Little Lino” project, in which interested persons purchase one foot square pieces of linoleum, design and carve them, and have them printed by the steamroller at Roadworks.

Ongoing activities throughout the day include steamroller printing, “little lino” printing, children’s art corner, tours of the SFCB Austin/Burch Gallery and studios, free letterpress mini-workshop at the Center located at 300 De Haro near the corner of Rhode Island, live music, entertainment on stage, and food vendors
