Meet Your Maker- An Inside Look at Fishtown’s Creative Economy

BYO Print has called the Fishtown / Kensington Neighborhood it’s home for over 4 years now. While the neighborhood had already begun establishing itself as an Arts Corridor, we have seen some extraordinary strides recently with new businesses, restaurants, studios and art spaces popping up all over the place. The creative ingenuity is inspiring. Whether you live here, work here, or enjoy hanging out here in Fishtown, you should definitely come and “Meet The Makers” this First Friday.

The Meet Your Maker Project, created by The Art Dept, will feature makers and creative businesses in the Fishtown / Kensington area. It is a multi-faceted project that includes a photography exhibition (Opening Friday, December 6th at The Art Dept), interviews with the local “creators”, and a catalog that will act as a guide to all the wonderful things happening in the creative community of Fishtown.

How Lovely! BYO Print is so lucky to be a part of this awesome community, and lucky to have been photographed and interviewed for the project.

Here are some Links so you can learn more!

Guest Printer Jessica Barber exhibits at Twenty-Two Gallery in Philadelphia

Jessica came to BYO Print last month to print some large lithos (polyester) at our shop for this show. Check it out if you're in the neighborhood! The show is up through July 7th, 2013.

Where: Twenty-Two Gallery              236 S. 22nd St.              Philadelphia, PA

Artist's Statement:
Jessica Barber takes a highly intuitive approach to her work, drawing inspiration from a variety of subject matter. Most often, she captures the essence of the human form in a loose, expressive manner, using color and texture with graphic accents as her primary focus. She views mixed media as the ideal way to communicate her vision, employing a combination of painterly monotypes, direct application of oil and pastels, and the addition of polyester plate lithography and other transfer methods.

In this exhibit, Jessica Barber’s mixed media and fine art prints concentrate on symbols of our industrial past: what is left of structures no longer in use, now relics of an often forgotten period of prosperity.  She explores this reality through portraits of these structures, along with images depicting the perspectives of humans co-existing and adapting as their environments further disintegrate into decay or transition into renewed vitality.  Among pipelines and condemned homes, scrap yards, and rapidly revitalizing neighborhood corridors, she examines traces of the past, and hints of the evolution yet to come.
