Spudnik Press invites you to attend our Open House and Fundraiser. Spudnik Press Cooperative is hosting a full day of festivities in recognition of three far out years of community print making.
During Open House Spudnik members will be providing free demonstrations. Visitors will be able to make their own greeting card or a patch with materials provided by the studio, and are encouraged to bring any addition materials to print on. Anyone interested in learning more about the studio is encouraged to come by, see our collection of prints, ask questions, and basque in the energy of community art making.
In the evening, festivities will move to Happy Dog Gallery. Jazz ensemble New Now Know How will perform. Complimentary beer will accompany a silent auction. The event is free, but all guests who contribute $10 will receive a complimentary print. $25 donations will receive a block printed T-shirt made on site. All contributions will support Spudnik’s artist residency program, open studio sessions, free workshops, and new equipment. The Silent Auction will include art from Paul Nudd, Jeremy Tinder, Wrik Repasky, Sue Coe, Sanya Glisic, Jeremy Lundquist, and Chicago's favorite poster printers. In addition to the auction, we will be releasing Lilli Carré newest artist book created through our residency program.
Lilli Carré, Sue Coe, Sanya Glisic, Micheal Miller, Rachel Niffenegger, Paul Nudd, Jeremy Tinder, Delicious Design League, Sonnenzimmer and more.
