The Sweet Science of Printing

Let’s get it on

Pat Benatar once taught us that love is a battlefield, and while she was so, so right, it appears that in the world of competitive poster-making, love is a boxing ring. At least that's the setting selected at Subterranean Books (6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City), as Subby hosts a dual art show by two local printmaking firms under the title Battle of the Champions. The Belleville, Illinois-based Centric Studios shows off its screen-printed wares (like what's pictured), while St. Louis' own Firecracker Press throws haymakers with its old-school letterpress method. Will the bruisers from Centric bring some street-wise moves with them from the east side? Will the Firecracker crew live up to its name and add some flash and sparkle to the fight? Best secure a ringside seat and find out for yourself, as the opening reception begins at 7 p.m. Friday, November 14. The exhibition continues in Subterranean's upstairs gallery through Sunday, January 11. For more information call 314-862-6100 or visit
