Fresh Prints @ Klekolo

Our featured Artist this month is

Letterpress Art Prints

Created by Katie & Berk Ziegler

“Letterpress is the oldest method of printing where the artwork is embedded into the paper using “relief” type printing plates.  A “relief” plate is one where the area to be printed is physically raised from the surface of the plate.  The plates are hand-set and then inked by the press operator allowing the design and lettering to be imprinted onto the paper.  The letterpress embosses the design into the surface of the paper creating a textured, three-dimensional effect. “

At Klekolo Fresh prints is featuring their Dictionary Prints.

“These prints are definitely a conversation starter and look fabulous as a wall hanging. Each design is carefully selected and then printed on vintage dictionary paper giving it that beautiful golden color that only comes from age. Since we use real book pages some unevenness or spotting occurs, this only adds another layer to the print, making each one truly unique.”

Our Artist through the month of January is Jake Urban .

You can find him on Facebook

And on his blog Jake Urban Art

“My medium of choice is photography. I take digital photographs, process them, and then turn them into 1:1 scale negatives in Photoshop. From there I can print them as a variety of modernized historic photographic prints such as kalitypes and cyanotypes. It is an interesting process where modern technology mixes with historic processes and art mixes with chemistry.” Taken from Jake’s bio.

Jake’s work will be on exhib at Klekolo through January come on by and see.

Mercy Choir & Lys Guillorn Nov. 27 at 7pm

We feel very Lucky to have these 2 awesome performers come to Klekolo World Coffee!!

“Mercy Choir is the songwriting and recording project of Paul Belbusti from New Haven, CT. Mercy Choir’s music is a pabulum of traditional American folk and blues, crudely mixed with avant psychedelic electronica. Mercy Choir performances range from Belbusti solo with guitar, to more fleshed out, full band incarnations. Speaking of carnations, Belbusti is known to send flowers to anyone who gives his album poor reviews. The website CT.com recently named Mercy Choir’s new album The Very Great and Horrible Harshness “Album of the Day” and said, “Exceptional… [Mercy Choir is] one of the best one-man projects to come out of CT in recent memory.” -The writer of the article received no flowers.

“Lys Guillorn can be defined as a bit of a prairie specter. Her country-gothic voice wavers between a delicately sweet high lilt, as if leaking through from a past time, and a clear and deep husk that is sometimes frightening in its intimacy.”

“I was quickly drawn into the world of this talented singer-songwriter-musician, all three of which she excels at. Rather than try to define her, or stamp a genre on her, I will instead say…find her!” – The Village Voice

Hope you can join us for an awesome evening of music with these two amazing musicians!
