Angee Lennard

Founder & Director

Angee Lennard is an artist and teacher, but is best known for her work as the Founder and Executive Director of Spudnik Press Cooperative, a community-based art center in Chicago. Now in it’s ninth year, Spudnik Press has evolved from an experimental work/live space to a multi-facetted organization unique in its dedication to printmaking. Under Lennard’s leadership, Spudnik Press provides artistic opportunities to over 3,500 people a year through studio access, residencies, fellowships, classes, exhibitions, collaborative projects and public programs.

As a teaching artist through Marwen and Spudnik Press, she develops curriculum addressing print media, community projects, and illustration.  She is surprisingly passionate about the parallels between art making and arts administration. She holds a BFA from SAIC.

Tara Zanzig

Administrative & Marketing Assistant

Tara Zanzig is a multi-disciplinary BFA graduate of The School Of The Art Institute of Chicago, 2001. With 11 years in the commercial textile screen printing industry, Tara shifted her focus to fine art in 2013.

Tara’s work is an exploration of existence. A way to process, an effort to understand, a search for meaning in this life. Aesthetically the work evidences roots in DIY punk specifically photocopying, band flyers, anarchist propaganda and zines. The work is influenced by pop art/culture, psychology and screen printing. Re-occurring themes are inner/outer, parts of a whole, experience, perception, emotion, and communication.
