I have been the lurkiest of lurkers lately. Because this list is so active,
sometimes I get dramatically behind on e-mails... My apologies. Here's why
I've been so busy...

Spudnik Press, the printshop I founded in Chicago in 2007, moved into a
larger space devoted solely to the Press. We are now in a beautiful loft
space. With this change of venue comes the launch of many new programs and
opportunities, such as an Artist Residency, monthly memberships, more
classes, more events, and even a blog to help keep printmakers informed
about shows, exchanges, and interesting new work. (The blog is starting out
low-key, but I'll gradually be getting it up to speed to make it a premier
place to find opportunities to see and show work).

A clip from our Press Release:

"To celebrate this milestone in our trajectory, we will be hosting a night
of print-related activities. This housewarming event will showcase work from
a myriad of artists have have used our space to create work over the last
year. All work will be for sale, starting at just 25 cents for 2 inch prints
(sold out of a capsule machine!), and most work will be priced between $10
and $50. There will be an intaglio demonstration by Director Angee Lennard.
Those who come celebrate with us are also encouraged to participate in the
art-making by printing their own monoprint. And as with all of our events,
we'll have plenty of food, drinks, and music. We hope to use this event to
celebrate the vibrant art community in our city, and in particular, the
incredibly supportive community that exists among contemporary printmakers.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Director Angee
Lennard, at 312-532-0304 or, or visit"

Any of you that come to Chicago for Southern Graphics next year, should
definitely come by. Maybe we could coordinate a gathering at Spudnik.
Actually, maybe we could hang a few of the exchanges and have a show. (It's
too late to make it an official SGC event, but I think that's okay. We can
still get the word out.)
