Members of the CPG…and those wanting to be members,
Our next monthly meeting is being held Wednesday, August 5 at the cozy letterpress studio of our host Vida Sacic. As usual the doors will open at 7pm and the meeting will start at 7:30. Vida will give a tour of her studio that includes a Vandercook 4 and an edited selection of wood and metal type. Examples of her work will also be presented.
The studio is located at 3759 N Ravenswood Ave #135A on the first floor of the industrial building on the corner of Ravenswood and Grace (behind the Trader Joe’s on Lincoln Ave). There is a buzzer with her name on it. Public Transit is easily accessible via Brown line Addison or Irving Park stop.
