A gallery exhibition at Nicolet College closes Friday. It features paper and book arts made by people involved with the Mill, an arts nonprofit based in Rhinelander. 

Executive Director Daniel Goscha says the show is a kind of retrospective of the nonprofit’s first year. 

“It is a very diverse show.  There’s examples of book arts, of printmaking, of letterpress and cyanotype.  So it really is a broad show in terms of featuring paper making and book arts and all of the many facets that can take.”

During the holiday season, you might be receiving more cards in the mail than you normally do.  But how many of those cards are printed by hand?  One Rhinelander arts organization is an expert in doing just that.  The technique is a combination of old and new techniques.   

Daniel Goscha’s tiny printing studio has a cabin-like feel and smells of wood smoke.

He’s standing over an antique letterpress.  It’s kind of like a hundred year old copy machine…except it’s made out of metal and…well, there are some other differences too.
