Featuring affordable fine art prints and works-on-paper by both local and international artists, CPC is Chicago’s longest-running fine art printmaking workshop, where gallery visitors mingle with printmakers as they create on the presses.

Kennedy Jr., Damon Kowarsky, Karen Kunc, Kim Laurel, Deborah Maris Lader, Carrie Lingscheit, Kumi Obata, Dennis O’Malley, Jaco Putker, Artemio Rodriguez, Jay Ryan, Jeff Sippel, Sarah Smelser, Kouki Tsuritani, Nicola Villa, Art Werger, Scott Westgard and others.

Exhibition openings and open houses for group shows occur throughout the year on Saturday evenings 5-8pm. CPC is proud to celebrate its 30th year with an ongoing series of community events and projects, including a 30-artist portfolio, a 30-year exhibition, free demonstrations, a schedule of renown visiting artists, and a Steamroller Arts Fest.
