About the Exhibit“Suite Prints” is an exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, a community of print artists who create handmade prints in the facility on Chicago’s north side. In the 25 years since its inception, many of Chicago’s best-known printmakers have passed through the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, creating prints in all media of printmaking. The printmaking facility features printmaker’s studios, classes, workshops, exhibitions and sales, all under the leadership of Director Deborah Maris Lader. Our exhibition at the Christopher Art Gallery features works from four collaborative suites of prints (in which various members contribute a print to a large portfolio based on a theme or anniversary), as well as a number of framed works by current and previous members. The 25th anniversary is being celebrated with simultaneous exhibitions at Prairie State College and at the Chicago Cultural Center.... See the guide for more information.
