Join the Equipment Fund Committee

Did you know that our Equipment Fund Committee is raising money for a new computer station? We are raising $6,000 to purchase two new iMacs and a high-end tabloid laser printer.  We are 25% there and need your help!

How you can help:

1. Reach out to your place of work.

Many businesses help their employees fundraise through matching donations, sponsorship, or a simple in-office fundraiser. Does your office offer free coffee?  Setting up a simple donation jar for a day can help us reach our goal!

2. Purchase items from our “Little Delicious Planet” snack bar.

Our snack bar, located just inside the doors to the Spudnik studio, offers items for a donation, and that money goes DIRECTLY to the Equipment Fund. Just by quelling your hunger, you’re helping us get closer to new technology.

3. Donate equipment or technology to Spudnik.

We recently received a donation of an iPad from one of our members, and we are SO APPRECIATIVE! Spudnik is a non-profit and we make every dollar and donation stretch. The new iPad will allow us to offer better experiences at our events and better organize our inventory when we’re at fairs representing member artwork!

4. Join the Equipment Fund Committee.

Join current members Jennifer Ackerman and Veronica Siehl and Jessica Christy, Development Assistant. The more help we have, the more we can raise! We meet once a month and work together on fundraising opportunities.

Spudnik Press knows that you rely on the equipment in our studios and our computers certainly need a boost. Please consider helping us get there. To get involved, reach out to Jessica Christy, Development Assistant.

Benjamin Merritt, February 2020

Benjamin Merrit’s research intersects with the discussion of chronic illness.  According to Merrit, chronic illness is continually based around cure and cause, often times with a language that puts the patient at fault (stigma around weight, smoking, alcohol consumption) in situations where those are proven to not be causes for the illness.  Recently, the ways language is used in clinical settings and text have become more important in his work.  Merritt aims to bring attention to the complex relationship between the body and language in medical discourse, and to encourage the viewer to consider compassionate and affective methods of discussing illness.

Spudnik Press Cooperative Organizes 2nd Annual Chicago Print Crawl

2019 Chicago Print Crawl
Saturday, May 4, 2019
11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
www.chicagoprintcrawl.art

On Saturday, May 4, 2019, Spudnik Press Cooperative, in collaboration with 36 venues, presents the second annual Chicago Print Crawl, an annual, self-guided tour of printmaking production, publishing, exhibition and sales venues throughout the City of Chicago.

The Chicago Print Crawl offers a behind-the-scenes peek into Chicago’s vibrant printmaking industry. 34 eclectic printmaking venues throughout the city are inviting the public to stop by for a day of free activities including studio tours, print sales, hands-on art projects, gallery exhibitions, and printmaking demonstrations.

Chicago has been a hub for commercial printing since the late nineteenth century with dozens of mail order catalogs (Sears Roebuck and Co.), magazines (Time Magazine via RR Donnelley), and maps (Rand McNally) all produced in the area. While the printing industry has undergone tremendous change, the Third Coast continues to boast an impressive spectrum of print shops from private artist studios to commercial facilities to collectives and educational spaces. Some venues proudly house cast iron presses, tradition stone lithography, and analog processes. Other favor digital design, modern technology, or a blend of old and new. Connected to these distinctive production sites are a range of unique galleries, local businesses, and DIY spaces that bring printed items (i.e. stationary, fine art, books, posters, apparel, and more) to an audience of print-enthusiasts, art collectors, and anyone interested in craftsmanship and shopping local.

With open houses in neighborhoods from Evanston to McKinley Park and from Oak Park to Michigan Avenue, participants are invited to print their way through Chicago.

Spudnik Press Welcomes New Program Director, Susannah Papish

Spudnik Press Cooperative is excited to kick off the new year with new staff! Susannah Papish has joined the Spudnik Press team as Program Director. As an artist, a curator, and an educator, Susannah brings an abundance of experience to our organization. Please be sure to say hello the next time you visit our studio!

Our staff decided to put together a little interview to help our community get to know her:

Angee: What excites you the most about joining the Spudnik Press Cooperative family?

Susannah: Working with artists and creative people everyday!  I think of this position as part collaboration, part interaction and lots of generative thinking.

Tara: Can you talk about a specific instance when you have been significantly affected, influenced, changed by a work of art?

When I was a senior in high school I was able to take a class offered for high school credit at The Art Institute.  It was the year Dread Scott’s (a student at the time) piece “How to Display an American Flag” was exhibited at The School of the Art Institute.  Dread’s piece displayed the flag on the floor and invited viewers to comment.  In order to provide a comment, one was given the option of walking on the flag.  Needless to say, this created a huge controversy!  People all over the country were outraged–one side demanded it be removed and one side cited first amendment freedom of expression rights. The entire event it made me realize that art has this power to affect our lives with such deep meaning and in ways we wouldn’t anticipated.  After high school, I was determined to pursue making art and although it’s a difficult choice sometimes, I’m so happy I’ve remained tenacious.

Jess: If you could sit down to dinner with any artist in the world – alive or not – who would it be and why?

Susannah: Tough one, but I must say Louise Bourgeois.  Why–I love the way her work takes on so many different forms and how she brings in psychological content.  For me personally, I would love to talk to her about being a woman working hard in the art world during an even more male-dominated period and juggling parenthood along with being an artist.  Her deep experience with her work and all kinds of artists is endlessly interesting to me.

Mike: If you didn’t work in the arts, what other career/job could you see yourself pursuing?

Susannah: A librarian!  I love research and libraries.  I was actually set to attend a MLIS (masters in library and information sciences) program a couple of years ago, but I deferred for various reasons and then re-thought my career path.

Jess: Do you have pets? If so, can you introduce them to us? (We are pet people here at Spudnik)

I have four cats:  Eli, king of the castle, Panda, named for the black rings around her eyes, Poppy, a long hair tortoise who looks like she’s going burst into bloom, Margaret, “Margi” (hard g), sometimes called “Sister Margaret of Sorrows”  because she cries all the time and is mostly black with a little white like a nun’s habit.

Mike: Do you have any hobbies/What do you do in you free time (assuming you have any to begin with)?

Susannah: Ha, yeah not a lot of free time!  Outside of work, I run a contemporary project space called boundary.  It’s in my garage and we opened in June 2017.  We’ve shown local, national & international artists.  I also have my own studio practice as painter.  I am also a mom–which is not a hobby, but keeps me quite busy along with everything else!

Tara: What’s your desert island album? (Stranded on a desert island, one album for the rest of your life.)

Ooooh!  I guess I’d have to say the album that gets my studio time flowing is Sea Change, Beck.  I listened to this constantly post grad school so it’s attached to a particular time in my art-making life.  And anything by Erykah Badu.

New Authorization Schedule In 2019

In our efforts to make Spudnik Press increasingly accessible, we’ve made some changes to the authorization process to introduce new artists and makers to our organization and facilities. As always, anyone interested in simply checking out the space is welcome to stop in and take a look around during any of our business hours or open studio sessions.

If you are an experienced printer looking to use our facilities, we ask that you attend an Authorization Session.

Authorization sessions include:

  • General Studio Tour
  • Overview of our programs that provide ongoing support to artists and makers
  • Discussion of prior printing experiences to determine if minimum requirements for authorization are met
  • Brief operational and safety demonstration on equipment and processes specific to the needs of the attendees

Once authorized, artists can take advantage of Open Studio or other Studio Access Programs. Artists may stay and print immediately upon completion of authorization. However, we recommend getting authorized well in advance of any project deadlines.

NEW 2019 Authorization Schedule:

Mondays: 7:00pm sharp
Fridays: 1:00pm sharp

You are welcome to drop in for authorization sessions, but it’s helpful if you RSVP to let us know that you are coming and what process(es) you want to be authorized for. Just email info@spudnikpress.org or call 312-563-0302.

Letterpress Authorizations requires scheduling a hands-on printing session with a Teaching Artist. This 3-hour session costs $125. Email info@spudnikpress.org to schedule an authorization.This requirement can occasionally be waived by providing a reference who can speak to the qualifications of the printer.

Hope to see you soon!

Spudnik and the Chicago Artists Coalition Announces “The New Printmakers Collection”

Spudnik Press Cooperative and the Chicago Artists Coalition (CAC) is thrilled to announce the second year of their project “The New Printmakers Collection: A Collaboration between Spudnik Prints Cooperative and the Chicago Artists Coalition.” The program is designed to offer collectors a portfolio of prints by three artists on the rise. The artists invited to participate are new to printmaking, and all are former residents of CAC’s BOLT or HATCH programs, which offer solo and group exhibition’s, respectively. This year’s artists include Benjamin Larose (BOLT 2017-18), Caroline Liu (HATCH 2017-18), and Roni Packer (BOLT 2017-18).

“By working with artists whom are not accustomed to printmaking, we are able to develop fresh and unique prints while providing the featured artists the opportunity to work with a master printer to produce new work otherwise beyond their means. We have truly enjoyed finding inventive ways to capture the essential elements of an artist’s practice whose work is typically in media as disparate as photography, fiber arts, and installation,” said Angee Lennard, Founder and Director of Spudnik.

This program is generously supported by collector Browne Goodwin, who began his own collection by acquiring prints. “Prints are often very affordable, easy to store, and well-suited for hanging in a home – enabling more people to share the adventure of collecting the art of their time,” explained Goodwin.

Prints may be purchased individually or as a collection packaged with a colophon and an archival portfolio. Prints are each 11×15″ on archival cotton paper. Edition of 14. Prints will be available on CAC’s and Spudnik’s websites for a reduced price during the pre-sale, running September 6-26. After September 26, prints will be for sale at full price.

The Chicago Artists Coalition is a non-profit organization that supports contemporary Chicago artists and curators by offering residency programs, exhibitions, professional development and resources that enable them to live, work and thrive in the city. CAC is deeply committed to advancing the cause of art and its importance in Chicago’s culture and economy by cultivating a wide-reaching civic, philanthropic and public support network.
