Founded in 1989, Chicago Printmakers Collaborative (CPC) is the city's longest running independent printmaking workshop. The workshop occupies the former Penn Dutchman Antiques building, recently renovated specifically for this medium with natural light pouring through its skylight, larger spaces around the presses, new artist studios, equipment upgrades and a rooftop deck. Promoting the art of handmade printing through affordable shop access, classes, workshops, lectures and exhibitions, CPC provides facilities for traditional print media, including etching, stone lithography, relief, book arts and screen printing. The CPC gallery features fine art prints from around the world—from concert posters to cityscapes—that showcase the compelling beauty of the hand-inked impression.
Watch Chicago artists Dennis O'Malley and Hiroshi Ariyama demonstrate Etching and Screenprinting in the main studio! Visitors will also have the opportunity to make something themselves to take home as a reminder of their visit.
