On Saturday, November 10 the Chicago Printers Guild (CPG) holds its third iteration of the Chicago Printers Guild Publishers Fair to be held at Constellation in Roscoe Village. Over 30 printmakers will be present to sell their self-published print work, providing a unique opportunity for Fair attendees to meet the artists and ultimately engage in the tradition-rich print landscape of our region. The majority of the work showcased is extremely limited and likely to sell out. Framing of purchased artwork will be available on site from The Frame Shop. Attendees can walk out with a framed, original piece of artwork handed to them by the same hands that created it.

In addition to the coveted work showcased by vendors, the Fair will have on display the striking, large-format steamroller prints, think “larger than a person”, created by printmakers at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative’s 2018 Steamroller event. Enjoy all of this with drinks stirred by the bartenders at Constellation and tunes spun by CHIRP Radio DJs.

Since 2009 the Chicago Printers Guild has cultivated print culture through monthly meetings of its members, which includes more than 100 printmakers from the Chicago area. The Guild strives to bring awareness of print culture to the general public through activities such as lectures, workshops, field trips, art exhibits, and, since its inaugural year in 2016, this Publishers Fair. The Guild also hopes to cultivate future printmakers and so is sponsoring participation in the Fair of the recipient of the Chicago Printers Guild Student Award as well as participants in Harold Washington Library’s YOUmedia department which has been studying printmaking through a 2018 summer program funded by the Terra Foundation.
