On Saturday, November 9 the Chicago Printers Guild (CPG) will hold its fourth iteration of the Chicago Printers Guild Publishers Fair at Constellation in Roscoe Village. As the organization celebrates its 10th anniversary, the level of its members’ print work is on the rise. Over 30 of these printmakers will be present to sell their self-published print work and will include the Guild-sponsored recipient of the 2019 CPG Student Award and Instituto Grafico de Chicago, a print organization dedicated to maintaining the critical activist tradition of Latino printmaking. This event provides a unique opportunity for Fair attendees to meet the artists and ultimately engage in the tradition-rich print landscape of our region.
A majority of the work is limited and likely to sell out. Framing of purchased artwork will be available on site from The Frame Shop. Drinks stirred by the bartenders at Constellation and tunes spun by Birds + B-sides and Fuzzbox DJs. La Cocinita Food Truck will be parked out front with lunch including vegan and vegetarian options.
