Students from Reuther Center High School with CCR at the Space

On October 24th CCR was invited to make paper and print T-shirts with Ruether High School art students. The students also had an opportunity to work with Yanos,  a tie-dye maker. Thanks, Amy and Ashlee for making this happen, and to the Kenosha Creative Space for hosting the workshops.

25 years Anchor Graphics opening @ the Hokin Project room , Columbia College Chicago

25 Years of Printmaking!  Do we ever think about what we will be doing in 10 years let alone 25?  So many faces float into view when I think about the time that too quickly passed. People we have been fortunate to know and to work with.

The only thing that I can feel is gratitude for everyone who has given of their time and energy.  Support from hundreds of people in a hundred different ways. Without your assistance, encouragement, and ideas, the place would not have made it.

The ephemera table, postcards & newsletters, snippets of AG's history.

Stay tuned, Anchor Graphics is now the Center for Collaborative Research.

An Anchor Graphics retrospective exhibition.
Anchor Graphics was a not-for-profit fine art press that brought together, under professional guidance, a diverse community of youth, emerging and established artists, and the public to advance the fine art of printmaking by integrating education with the creation of prints. The press was founded by David Jones and Marilyn Propp, and later became a program of the Art and Art Design department within Columbia College Chicago’s School of Fine and Performing Arts in 2006 and continued its mission within the college until 2015.
