Nossi College of Art 2021 Graduation
August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We are excited to bring Nossi’s traditional graduation back in 2021! We have secured our go-to venue space at Goodpasture High School to host our grads. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, August 21. The ceremony will begin at 1 PM and grads should be arriving by 10 AM to get their pictures taken and participate in a practice run-through before the event begins.
Commencement Speaker Celene Aubry of Hatch Show Print
Celene Aubry is the Director and Print Shop Manager at Hatch Show Print, one of America’s oldest surviving letterpress show poster and design shops. Since coming aboard in the summer of 2012, she has coordinated the shop’s relocation from its home since 1992 on lower Broadway in downtown Nashville, to its new, custom-designed, and expanded location on Fifth Avenue South.
In addition to managing the shop and business, she oversees the development of additional Hatch Show Print programs and activities that leverage two of the new HSP spaces – classroom and gallery – while still carrying on the shop’s tradition of preservation through production and making posters for the customers, too. On sunny days and in the wee hours, Aubry enjoys pursuing her quest to bring together the two outmoded processes of letterpress printmaking and hand-printed photographs.
Several questions have been asked about guests. We have a large enough space where you can welcome as many guests as you like. All grads will get 5 invitations which will be available by the end of July at the front desk. Faculty, staff, alumni, and current students are all welcome to attend this event.
