Layer Make Open House

Friday, February 26, 2010, 7 – 10 pm

This January and February, artists who printed at Spudnik worked collaboratively to create one-of-a-kind prints using the projects they were already working on. Layer by layer, printers added their mark to not only four collaborative prints, but our gallery wall as well.

On Friday, February 26th, we are inviting you to stop by the studio, say hi, eat some layer cake, and learn about making artwork in a community studio. While you’re here, head downstairs to The Post Family. The fine printers at Sonnenzimmer, Nick Butcher and Nadine Nagasaki, will be hosting their first solo show of entirely non-commissioned art.

House Press is a poetry-centered group of artists and writers which began to form in Buffalo, NY in 2001. Its mission remains simple: to self-publish their own work and other work they variously believe in. Over the last year or so, House Press and Spudnik Press have collaborated to create covers for House publications and host poetry readings. Past readings have featured talented poets from the midwest, the east coast, and even Canada. Tonight will celebrate the release of new work by four talented artists from our very own Second City.

Featured Artists:

Luke Daly, reading from VATS
Michael Slosek, reading from The Sequel
Eric Unger, reading from Bastion
Barrett Gordon, reading from Bodyhome

The Hashbrown: Success!

I would like to extend a sincere THANKS to everyone that came out to celebrate with us. I couldn’t imagine having a better time. The food was delicious. The band was amazing. The company was top notch. Everyone who came chose a free print to take home. And to top it all off, the night ended in a dance party…

Let’s do that every year….

The Complex of All These

It’s been a long time since I posted something other than in invite to a Spudnik event or a new print made at the shop. But today I came across a video that I can’t help but share. It comes from Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY. A fellow printer and friend of Spudnik, Jessica Vaughn, was a resident artist at Women’s Studio Workshop last year, and cued me in to the great work they are doing. A more recent resident artist Abigail Uhteg put together this stop motion animation document how she created her most recent artist book. It is entertaining, and if you aren’t an experienced etcher and book binder, educational to boot!
