“Bicycle Pugilists 1″ by Marnie Galloway

Saturday I dropped by the opening for Cycle-Pedia, a new show of prints celebrating cycling and other forms of human-powered transportation at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, 4642 N. Western in Lincoln Square, 773-292-2070. This very cool space allows print artists to have an excellent work environment for reasonable rent by pooling their resources. The opening included free bicycle tune-ups and featured a plethora of witty images of cycling, skateboarding and more. The show runs until April 30.

The light, airy space seems like an ideal place to squeegee ink.

    Thanks John, for introducing the printmakers to GRID and for bringing GRIDsters to printmaking. Nice to share the road with you.

      Thanks for letting us run the artists’ prints. Hmm, “GRIDsters” -  I like that! Perhaps you guys could print up some “GRIDster” trucker caps for us…

    Oh man, I’m glad you wrote about this because I didn’t know! FYI though, the building is on Western, not Lincoln.
