All Star Press Announces First Solo Exhibition & Print Release with Three Local Chicago Artists
July 5, 2017
All Star Press kicks off July with two major collaborations with Chicago based artists. Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff, owner and illustrator of the new screen-print sports art gallery, welcomes art lovers and sports fanatics to Logan Square to check out his print jerseys as well as work by three respected local artists.
All Star Press’ First Solo Exhibition “SUBCEPTION” by Lefty Out There
July 29-August 12
Getting his start in the Chicago graffiti scene 6 years ago, Lefty Out There has since expanded all over the world and into mediums such as fashion, furniture, installations, photography, and projections. Experimenting with untraditional screen-print processes, Lefty’s creations are aiming to emphasize the beauty of color, glare and reflection culminating in a showcase of limited edition screen-prints. The exhibition opens with an artists’ reception on Saturday, July 29 from 6 to 10 p.m. Subception will be available for viewing through August 12.
All Star Press Print Release with Adam Shortlidge & Kate Lewis
The gallery’s unrivaled array of sports art continues as Zissou teams up with Shortledge and Lewis for a monthly limited print release. Adam Shortlidge’s passion for vintage design will launch a “versus matchup” with a print featuring a new player vs a classic player. Kate Lewis, whose freehand drawings of architecture chronicle life experiences, will showcase a “stadium tour” as she travels to different sports arenas throughout the world through her art. The “tour” prints will be available as a collection or for purchase individually.
