Greetings from the CPC!
If you're having trouble staying warm this winter, stop by the studio where the hotplate is likely to be turned way up while melting an aquatint, or the nitric acid is generating some heat while etching a piece of copper, or where some student is getting a great workout grinding stones in one of our Bikram Litho classes (omg, look at those biceps!), or where interns are re-heating the morning coffee. We got rid of our burning barrel due to fire hazards, but we do have adhesive toe warmers for anyone who is still feeling a chill.
And speaking of HEAT, we're really STOKED for our next exhibit with The New York Society of Etchers, New Work: New York, which exclusively features the printmaking medium of Intaglio (also known as Etching). We invite all who are interested in learning about etching to attend our big fun day of intaglio demonstrations, right here at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative:
