I have worked for Graphic Chemical & Ink Company since 1968 - with a brief hiatus(almost 4 years) to travel the World courtesy of my uncle. Sadly it turns out it was my Uncle Sam, and I wasn't too thrilled about the places that he chose to send me. My wife and I have run Graphic Chemical for many years, and have enjoyed the travel that comes with the position. We get to meet our customers (and the occasional vendor) from all over the World

2010 Artist-In-Residence Application As a courtesy to our good friends at Anchor Graphics, I am posting their recent e-mail in it's entirety. This program has been very well accepted and appreciated in recent years.

Anchor Graphics at Columbia College Chicago
2010 Artist-In-Residence Application
Deadline: October 18, 2009

Each year Anchor Graphics welcomes 6 Artists-In-Residence into our printshop for 3 week residencies. This program is offered to artists who are proficient in printmaking and who want an uninterrupted stretch of time to develop a body of print-based work. Anchor will provide residents with basic materials, shop access, the technical assistance of our master printers, editioning assistance from our interns, and a small honorarium. In exchange, resident artists are expected to interact with students in Anchor Graphics and Columbia College printmaking classes, present a public lecture on their work, and donate a few prints created during their residency to the Anchor Graphics archives. This program was started as a service to emerging and established artists who have demonstrated a strong interest in printmaking and might not otherwise have regular access to professional presses and equipment. It is open to all experienced printmakers including those living in the Chicago area.

Please note: Anchor Graphics' ability to provide housing and the amount of honorariums is dependent on a constantly changing funding situation and may vary from year to year. Anchor Graphics does not cover travel expenses.

To apply please email:
-10 digital images (please send JPEGs, no Power Point presentations or PDFs, and make sure your images can be opened on a Mac.)
-image list
-curriculum vitae (with contact info: email, phone number, and mailing address)
