Third & Elm Press
Drag box to select area
Third & Elm Press offers letterpress printing, and everything for sale in the gallery has been produced on the premises. The gallery will celebrate its 45th anniversary the fall of 2010. Ilse Buchert Nesbitt, the owner and artist, sells only her own work, which is exclusively woodcuts and hand-printed books and note paper of Newport scenes and from around the world as well as selected pieces of nature and wildlife. Third & Elm Press is unique in that it uses only 19th-century equipment, which is located in the shop. Visitors may see Nesbitt cutting a block, hand-setting type, printing on one of the old presses or making the paper for the prints.
