The era of fancy computer printing put sign painters out of work, but there’s been a resurgence of interest in the trade lately. The film Sign Painters — screening at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) at 7:30 p.m. — explains all this, and if you still have questions, stick around for a Q&A with one of the directors and check out Steady Work, an exhibit by local sign painters, at the gallery.
