Note from March 2020: Even though the gallery is currently Covid-closed in March and April, we can't wait to bring the work of all 30 of our artists to your home in the coming weeks via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You will be able to purchase the work, or simply ogle it while sporting your most comfortable loungewear whilst petting your dog. Stay tuned...

In September 2019, the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative kicked off a celebration of its 30th year with a series of events called CPC 30/2020. The CPC arty party continues with this exhibition, featuring the work of 30 artists who have played some sort of role in the history of our little printshop. Artists include CPC members, teachers, interns, visiting artists and gallery artists. They are all immensely talented and firmly committed to their studio practice, to printmaking, and to the community of artists who carve wood, draw on stones and plates, pull ink through screens, and drive the presses. They all make work that is gorgeous, well-crafted, and visually compelling.
