Charlottesville’s Telegraph is a new online and storefront/art gallery venture by husband and wife duo David Murray (of SEIBEI t-shirts) and Kate deNeveu. It’s a brilliant concept, combining the talents of alternative comics artists and the world of screenprinted art prints. They’re off to a great start with four shows so far which include contributions by some fantastic cartoonists such as Michael DeForge (Pup Lord), Sophia Foster-Dimino and Anthony Clark. They also take pride in surfacing new and emerging talents such as Julian Callos and Sean Morris.
Their latest show is called Two Tones which, as you may have gathered from the name, is a collection of 2-color, limited edition screen prints which loosely follow the theme of music. Contributors include Katie Skelly, Sam McKenzie and August Lipp to name a few. Selections from this show are featured below.
Posters from each of their shows are available for purchase online on their website for an affordable price (considering these are all hand-printed, limited edition screen prints). They also have started selling a handful of the books and zines online that they carry in their brick and mortar store in Charlottesville.
Telegraph seems to be on to something good here and I’m really looking forward to see where they take this as they grow. Be sure to catch them later this year at the Renegade Craft Fairs in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and San Francisco and The Small Press Expo (SPX) in September.
