Crosshair Studio's 20th Anniversary Re-Integrator Gallery Show

I have said it many times Dan MacAdam is one of the best printers anywhere, what he does with silk screen printing is nothing short of amazing. I'm very happy for Dan that his talents will finally get the recognition they deserve with his first ever gallery show. 2015 marks the twentieth year since Dan MacAdam founded Crosshair Design. Rather than a retrospective, "Re-Integrator" presents examples most recent evolutions of MacAdam's body of work, both as concert poster commissions and fine art editions, and includes several new works which will debut as Galerie F exclusive releases.

MacAdam presents decay and disintegration as a form of rebirth, where man made things are decoupled from their original intent and gain new identities as living, changing things: soulless creations in the process of acquiring souls. Though geographically wide-ranging, Re-Integrator's subjects draw heavy inspiration from the post-industrial landscape of Chicago and the upper Midwest.

Galerie F is enthused to be a part of this milestone for Crosshair, and for the Chicago printmaking community. Galerie F strives to support the longstanding history this city has with the world of printmaking as well as the men and women who built these foundations.

Join them on Friday August 14th from 6p to 10p for the opening of Dan's first gallery show.

Opening reception is free and open to the public.

T: 773.819.9200
HOURS: Tue-Sun 11:00am - 6:00pm

  1. Seeing pictures on the internet, Crosshair's prints look good, but in person they're astounding. When far too many prints that should be silkscreened end up coming out of someone's printer, it is fantastic to see someone with the technical chops to make these.
