Established in 2009, the Chicago Printers Guild (CPG) supports and fosters the work of printers and seeks to bridge the gap between commercial printing and fine-art printmaking.
The CPG 5 Year Anniversary highlights the collaborative nature and collective ethos of the guild by presenting both individual collaborative works by members of the guild. As the CPG reaches a five year milestone, we celebrates the exemplary work in print media being produced in Chicago and showcase the impact the guild has on its members and the Chicago printmaking community alike. New collaborative works are by featured artists Jaclyn Jacunski, Kate McQuillen, Matt Bodett, Megan Sterling, Justin Santora, Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff, Todd Irwin, and Maggie Marlin. Additional prints will be on display from the CPG Archive, house by the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College. Additionally, the exhibition will include a free takeaway designed by Troy Lehman and printed on Spudnik Press Cooperative’s newest equipment, a Risograph 3700.
The CPG 5 Year Anniversary Opening Reception will be held Saturday October 18th, 6-9pm and is a Featured Chicago Artist Month Event. In addition to the Annex at Spudnik Press, the 1821 Hubbard Street Lofts are hosting their Fall Open House. Participating venues include Platform Studios, Tsubo Salon and the private studios of Gerda Meyer Bernstein and Doug Fogelson.
