LOGAN SQUARE — Calling all printmaking enthusiasts: The Chicago Printers Guild is hosting its first-ever publishers fair in Logan Square.

The two-day fair, held at Elastic Arts, 3429 W. Diversey Ave., will kick off the evening of Nov. 18 with a gala featuring guest speakers like Angee Lennard, director of Spudnik Press Cooperative, Mark Pascale, a lithographer who currently works as the Janet and Craig Duchossois curator of prints and drawings at The Art Institute of Chicago and Duncan Dempster, a Honolulu-based artist and educator who is currently a printmaking instructor at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. 

On Nov. 19, more than 36 artists will sell their work, ranging from book art and gig posters to textiles and installations. For a full list of artists, visit the fair's website.

The Chicago Printers Guild was founded in 2009 as a way to "bridge the gap between commercial printing and fine art printmaking," the group said on its website. 

Anyone who is interested in attending the sale should come early because the amount of work is "extremely limited," the organization said.

The gala is set for 7-11 p.m. Nov. 18; doors open at 6 p.m. There is a $5 suggested donation. The art sale is set for noon-8 p.m. Nov. 19.
