Featuring: All of Us & All of You!
Hello photography and art-loving friends! YOU ARE INVITED to a Lab Warming party at our new location, 1821 W. Hubbard St., Suite 207, on March 28! We'll be celebrating our recent move to the building with a casual evening of camaraderie, including a Print Swap in which all are welcome (but not required!) to participate. You can RSVP on our Facebook event page here.
Light refreshments will be available, including a PRINT SWAP PUNCH developed one long, cold night in our old space back on the Kinzie industrial corridor.
How's it work? Well....
You bring a print (preferably unframed, whatever size you'd like) to the lab and trade it in for a raffle ticket. We put the print up in the Filter Space gallery. You get a chance to look round the gallery, see all the work, and decide on the ones you most admire. At approximately 7:00 o'clock we start pulling raffle tickets. When your number is called you rush up, grab the print you love--and it's yours! We recommend going the extra step and tracking down the artist and getting it signed. Keep an eye out for whoever grabs your print so that you can introduce yourself and sign it for them too! This is a chance to share your artwork with the Chicago community, as well as build up your art collection (which you have, right? if not, here's how you start it!).
Need to make a print so that you have one to swap? Let us know! Prints produced through the lab for the swap will receive a 10% discount. For details or to learn more, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't want to take part in the Print Swap? We'd love to see you anyway! Come to visit the space, indulge in some beverages, and connect with the creatives in the LATITUDE community.
