HOOFPRINT SUMMER SHOWCASE
New aquatic lithographs by MATT BOZIK
Experimental monotypes and works-in-progress by Ketubah Queen, RACHEL ELLISON
Linocuts based on fables, starring cats and rabbits and rats from ANNA HASSELTINE (oh my!)
What dark secrets lurk in the mind of intaglio madman, JOHN DiDOMENICO?
A lithograph by mysterious newcomer DEVIN OWSLEY-AQUILIA
Etchings by LOUIS GENTRY, the Parisian wonder, and our most recent intern. What a guy!
“What?” ask RAELEEN KAO, “You can’t handle your arsenic?” Check our her most venomous lithograph to date!
Two portraits by ZEKE PEÑA (also featured in the Desert Triangle Carpeta), who hails from El Paso, TX and visited us last summer to draw on some stones.
KATE PERRYMAN‘s monotypes will ensnare you with bold color and idiosyncratic shapes. It’s a trap! (Okay, it’s just inspired by traps)
LESLIE RILEY‘S incredible catalogue of pattern-based screenprints, some featuring as many as 20 layers!
An screenprinted, watercolor monotype by perrenial favorite, GABRIEL VILLA
As always, as selection of recent works by Hoofprint duo LIZ BORN and GABE HOARE will be available for your viewing pleasure.
A new screenprint and VERY special lavatory installation by CHLOË PERKIS
Organized by AJ Nordhagen and Brittany Kieler (of HOLODROME and Vulture Woman Press, respectively), “Sightings” includes 30 prints from artists all over the country, each asking the viewer to delve into the unknown.
“SIGHTINGS is an illustrated collection of images developed from eyewitness accounts of unexplained beings. Thirty artists contribute personal or historically documented experiences with cryptids, ghosts, extraterrestrials, and other mysterious entities. It is presented in a box set of editioned fine art prints and includes a field guide with laser-etched cover. Honoring visual traditions across the globe that illuminate the human relationship with these entities, SIGHTINGS asks the viewer to reconsider the breadth of science, continually expanding our way of knowing the world.”

We first saw this incredible portfolio in Portland at this past year’s Southern Graphics Council conference. Organized by Krrrl, the portfolio includes 22×30” works by 30 artists who teamed up with local printshops in the southwest and Mexico to produce the editions. They have a great blog that includes images of the prints as well as process photos, essays, and more. We are very honored to show these works in Chicago–we were blown away and we think you will be, too!
