About the ShowChicago Printmakers Collaborative is pleased to present SOFT, an exhibition of prints and textiles curated by Victoria Marie Barquin and Cassie Tompkins. In addition to exploring the shared appreciation for craft, repetition, imagery, and physicality between textile and print production, SOFT confronts the often gendered interpretation of the word by exhibiting works that are all at once emotive, graphic, skillful, and strong. This exhibition will feature artwork by Meg Roberts Arsenovic, Bukola Koiki, Melissa Leandro, Nicole Del Rio, Sonnenzimmer (Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi), Fraser Taylor, Cassie Tompkins, and Chris Williford. Exhibition Dates: June 22-August 31 Opening Reception: Saturday, June 22nd 5-8:00pm

Shipments continue to arrive from all over the world, and January is a wonderful time to indulge and purchase a little something special for yourself or a loved one. This heavily curated show is a brilliant and affordable way to start your art collection or add to your already-established cache of prints. The CPC staff is here to assist and unlock the treasure trove of the workshop flat files to help you find an image that is right for your budget and taste. Prepare to be inspired. Bring your parents, children, friends, teachers, and catch artists pulling prints off the presses as you view the gorgeous work on the gallery wall. It's basically the hottest spot on Western Avenue just north of the Lincoln/Western split in Lincoln Square. Looking forward to seeing you at our oasis of originality...!

To Arrive Where We Started
September 8 - November 3, 2018
CPC Faculty Exhibition
To Arrive Where We Started is an exhibition featuring artwork by the faculty of Chicago Printmakers Collaborative.
Teaching is often a reciprocal exchange where the process of learning and creation becomes cyclical between instructor and student. CPC celebrates the artistic output of its instructors - work that is often fueled by the act of teaching.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time
