Jessica Christy

Jessica Christy is a printmaker, designer, and North Dakota native living in the Chicago area.  She received her MFA from the University of North Dakota in 2011 and has since created works that challenge the status quo of human activity and the resulting impacts.  Heavily influenced by her upbringing in the Dakota culture, Christy often weaves the Native experience into her pieces.  Her work has shown both nationally and internationally; most recently, in a solo exhibition, Domestic Tides / Indigenous Mind, here at Spudnik Press in Chicago, Illinois.

Angee Lennard

Founder & Director

In the ten years since Angee Lennard founded Spudnik Press Cooperative, Chicago’s nonprofit community-based printmaking studio, the organization has evolved from an experimental work/live space to a multi-facetted organization unique in its dedication to providing approachable access to fine art printmaking to anyone who wishes to be creative through print. Under her leadership, Spudnik Press Cooperative provides pathways for individuals to grow their artistic practice over time and at their own pace through studio access, residencies, fellowships, classes, exhibitions, collaborative projects and public programs.

Angee Lennard is also a devoted educator whose teaching experience ranges from arts administration to illustration. As a lecturer at SAIC in the Arts Administration and Policy department, Lennard is able to share her perspective on the parallels between art making and arts administration and inspire students to find enjoyment in administrative roles. At Marwen, Lennard leads high school students through illustration, design, and printmaking projects. Her teaching at Spudnik Press Cooperative focuses on the technical elements of printmaking. She earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Printmedia from SAIC in 2005.

Fun Facts: Angee owns chickens (and eggs)! She believes that the egg came first.
