WGN TV just paid the CPC a visit the other day and the shop miraculously showcased 5 types of printmaking in under 2.5 minutes. A record, for sure!
Starring our very own Dennis O'Malley, Jeff Lassahn, Matt Bodett, Chase Sperry, Megan Sterling and Director Deborah Maris Lader, along with
WGN's Ana Belaval, who got to crank two presses and pull a screen print. If you're extremely jealous of Ana, just sign up for one of our classes
and you can crank something through a press too!
And for more footage of the CPC in live, full-on inky action, check out this video, when the shop was featured on TV in a really cool program called Chicago Works/Chicago Revealed, produced by the very talented Casey Clark, and brilliantly shot by Hector Perez, Gerard Grabowski & Encarnacion Rivera. If you ever wanted to see screen printing and etching in action, here's your chance:
We promote the art of the handmade print through shop access, classes & workshops, lectures, and exhibitions. The Collaborative accomodates a diverse range of media, including etching, lithography, screenprinting, relief, and the book arts. (What's etching? Printmaking processes explained!)
Clockwise from upper left:
Etching instructor Duffy O'Connor, main work studio, resident artist Bobby Sutton, lithography instructor Jeremy Lundquist (more workshop photos...) The Chicago Printmakers Collaborative is located at 4642 N. Western Avenue, Chicago IL 60625. View Directions and Map.
