The DeVos Art Museum at Northern Michigan University is featuring a new exhibit titled “Correlation Matrix: Vida Sacic + David Wolske." Both artists base their practice in the process of letterpress printing and showcase the creative ways designers utilize type beyond didactic communication. This leads them to explore the visual aspects of letter shapes and formal compositions.

Sacic was born in Croatia and moved to the Midwest as a high school exchange student following the wars in Yugoslavia. She will give an artist's talk about the exhibit at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, at the museum. Both Sacic and Wolske graduated from Marian University with their bachelor's degrees and then continued on to Indiana University Bloomington to earn master's degrees in graphic design. 

The exhibition runs through Nov. 6. It also features a capsule show of posters from Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tenn., and Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wis. Both are well known for their contributions to preserving and promoting letterpress printing.

The 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday; noon to 8 p.m. Thursday; and 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.
