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.
