Terry Tempest Wiliams in Portland Next Week
Wild Mercy Broadside Available
If you are a fan of Terry Tempest William's writings stop by the gallery and check out "Wild Mercy." It's a gorgeous letterpress broadside printed by Sandy Tilcock. The text reads:
The eyes of the future are looking back at us and they are praying for us to see beyond our own time. They are kneeling with hands clasped that we might act with restraint, that we might leave room for the life that is destined to come. To protect what is wild is to protect what is gentle. Perhaps the wildness we fear is the pause between our own heartbeats, the silent space that says we live only by grace. Wilderness lives by this same grace. Wild mercy is in our hands.
From Red: Passion and Patience in the Desert, copyright 2001 by Terry Tempest Williams, Pantheon Books.
Sandy Tilcock is one of the best letterpress printers on the west coast. 23 Sandy was proud to feature a show of her broadsides last fall. You can find a complete online catalog of that show here. Copies of the work are in the flat files in the gallery. Stop by and take a gander.
Mention that you saw this blog post for 20% off any Sandy Tilcock book or broadside.
