Over 80 artists! What?!!!! Yes, you read that right. After a long, pandemic-incited small print show drought, bite sized prints from across the known universe are winging their way to Chicago, soon to clothe the CPC walls in a visual celebration not seen since 2020. Featuring the finest new work being done internationally and locally by CPC gallery artists and newly invited printmakers. You know the drill people. You show up in your well fitting mask, do a bit of sanitizing, collect a homemade to-go snack, and start collecting gorgeous, affordable prints from the walls while we attempt to keep up with the mass buying frenzy. Prepare to be inspired. Bring your parents, children, friends, teachers, and favorite sea creatures. It's basically the hottest spot on Western Avenue just north of the Lincoln/Western split in Lincoln Square. Looking forward to seeing you at our oasis of originality...! For those of you who prefer a quieter experience, skip the opening and visit us during our special extended gallery hours, or make a private appointment. For those who would rather shop in your pj's while petting the dog, visit our online store, which we are now updating weekly with brand new work!
