Announcing Intima Gallery

Intima Press on Union Square in the heart of NYC is pleased to announce the opening of Intima Gallery in Saugerties, New York!  Mindy Belloff is thrilled  to partner with Steven Gentile, artist, poet and photographer in upstate NY (right next door to Woodstock). Our Union Square location continues to thrive as a print and design studio (almost 10 years now on the Square!).  Our new Gallery will showcase unique letterpress prints and books, custom stationery and announcements, and fine photography.

Intima Gallery opens August 10th at noon, with a reception from 5-7 pm.  Please join us at 196 Main Street.

Letterpress Consults, Lectures, Visits

It’s been a busy Spring & Summer.  Mindy Belloff was invited to Rich Turnbull’s History of the Book class at FIT to talk about her fine artist’s books.

Priscilla came into NYC from Brazil for a private consult, as did Macarena and her daughter from Argentina.  Both were wonderful meetings and tutorials on the clamshell press, as the unique craft of letterpress printing spreads to Latin America.

We had a fun time at the Westover School in CT, setting up the new print shop with demo and talk and printing Shakespeare broadsides with the students and teachers.
