Celene Aubry (b. 1970, lives and works in Nashville, TN, in the United States)
Celene Aubry is the Manager at Hatch Show Print, the iconic letterpress print shop continuously operating since 1879 in Nashville, Tennessee. While the business thrives as a letterpress poster and design shop, expanded programming includes a visiting artist program, a gallery showcasing print-centric art, and offering hands-on tours and workshops from the education space.
Her personal work uses letterpress printing, and photographic printing, specifically cyanotype and van dyke, and sometimes a combination of this media. She has taught letterpress printing at Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL, and letterpress and relief printmaking workshops at colleges and other printing-history related organizations, and savors the opportunity to share the story of Hatch Show Print whenever invited to speak at conferences, colleges, or community gatherings.
