"Print Me A Square" Opening at IALS!

Get ready for I Am Logan Square’s second printmaking show of the year, featuring gig posters and fine art by Logan Square’s very own! Print Me A Square, a showcase of Chicago printmakers, will open on Thursday, April 5th from 6 to 8:30 pm, at the I Am Logan Square Gallery, located at 2644 N. Milwaukee Avenue. During the opening reception, KIND Healthy Snacks will be providing delicious fruit & nut bar and cheese pairings to compliment IALS’s official gallery sponsors, Revolution Brewing and Paper Moon Pastry’s offerings.

Print Me A Square will showcase concert posters and fine art prints by FugScreens Studios, Justin Santora, Steve Walters, Ryan Duggan, Billy Craven, Kill Hatsumomo and Anna Mort.  All of the artists are part of Chicago Printer’s Guild and have strong ties to the Logan Square community.

"I put this show together because I believe it is increasingly important to make visible the culture of screenprinting in contemporary art. Gig posters and fine art prints are of a limited edition, signed and numbered by the artist rendering them collectable, but are still affordable and a successful means to keep art available to the public," explains exhibition curator, Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff.

Tasseff-Elenkoff is the founder of FugScreens Studios, a fully equipped, high quality silkscreen studio in Wicker Park, dedicated to making screen printing obtainable to public. Zissou graduated from the School of the Art Institute with a B.F.A. in Printmaking.

Print Me A Square will be on display through the end of April. The gallery will be open to the public Tuesday to Thursday, from noon to 6 pm, Friday to Saturday, from noon to 4pm and by appointment. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Come on out!


IALS hosts monthly gallery exhibitions of works by local artists and accepts exhibition proposals on a rolling basis. Participating artists and/or curators must either live or work in Logan Square to exhibit their work and priority will be given to group or collaborative shows.
