Celene Aubry is an artist and also the manager/ designer-printer at Hatch Show Print, an iconic letterpress print shop continuously operating since 1879 in Nashville, Tennessee. Hatch Show Print is a wonderful amalgam of working letterpress and design shop, tourist attraction, museum, and historical archive. A division of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum since 1992, the shop annually designs and prints over 600 jobs, and is host to over 100,000 visitors. While the business thrives as a letterpress poster and design shop, expanded programming includes a visiting artist program, a gallery showcasing print-centric art, and hands-on tours and workshops from the education space.
Aubry’s personal work uses letterpress printing and photographic processes, specifically cyanotype and Van Dyke prints, sometimes combining the various media. She has taught letterpress printing at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL, and letterpress and relief printmaking workshops at colleges and other printing-history related organizations. She savors the opportunity to share the story of Hatch Show Print whenever invited to speak at conferences, colleges, or community gatherings.
