Spudnik Launch Party
Saturday, October 18, 2008
@ Spudnik Press
1821 W Hubbard St.
Chicago, IL 60622
This fall, Spudnik Press moved into a larger space devoted solely to the Press. With this change of venue comes the launch of many new programs and opportunities, such as an Artist Residency, monthly memberships, more classes, more events, and even a blog to help keep printmakers informed about shows, exchanges, and interesting new work.
To celebrate this milestone in our trajectory, we will be hosting a night of print-related activities. This housewarming event will showcase work from a myriad of artists have have used our space to create work over the last year. All work will be for sale, starting at just 25 cents for 2 inch prints (sold out of a capsule machine!), and most work will be priced between $10 and $50. There will be an intaglio demonstration by Director Angee Lennard. Those who come celebrate with us are also encouraged to participate in the art-making by printing their own monoprint. And as with all of our events, we’ll have plenty of food, drinks, and music. We hope to use this event to celebrate the vibrant art community in our city, and in particular, the incredibly supportive community that exists among contemporary printmakers.
If you are unfamiliar with the shop, read about who we are and what we do at Spudnik Press (www.spudnikpress.com). Our main initiative is to provide affordable and approachable access to the tools and equipment required to work in the field of printmaking, and to encourage the community to utilize printmaking as an art-making medium and tool for democratic dissemination of art and ideas.
In conclusion we’d like to ask you to join us October 18, as we show off our new space, celebrate how far we’ve come in just over a year, as well as how far we plan to go.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Director Angee Lennard, at 312-532-0304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
