Road trips (and air trips for that matter), offer time to draw. It's cave painting vs. photography, is it not? In the car, morning coffee time, waiting for the next activity... might as well grab a pen and get to work. Or play. An early spring trip to Nashville offers the opportunity to fill out a few more pages.
On a recent trip to Nashville, Tennessee we dropped in on the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Lo and behold, the Hatch Show Prints shop has been relocated to the first floor of the museum. The print shop is intact and operating behind two large glass walls, so we were able to watch this historic letterpress outfit in action. As well as an amply supplied bookstore, there is a gallery showcasing beautiful prints, old and new. Some of the woodcut blocks that the prints were made from are also on display.
