One of the largest print sales in the region, Print Bazaar features thirty printmakers from around the St. Louis region who will present their art. Artists include Matty Kleinberg of Building Bases Press, who specializes in handmade journals, stationary and holiday ornaments; James “SkinnyD” Bratten, known for book pages, sheet music, necklaces, and greeting cards; Adrian Aquilino, who blends printmaking, painting and collage; Maginating, specializing in greeting cards and art prints and Garbage Party Press, makers of prints, comics, shirts and zines.

Start the day on Saturday, Dec. 5th by grabbing a hand-printed passport featuring the location of all print vendors and pick up a complimentary tote bag to house the wares you pick up throughout the day. Then continue on to print shops and galleries, pausing to take in the scene along the bustling avenue that is Cherokee Street. Enjoy activities, tours, and demonstrations along your walk.

Have a particular idea in mind that you’d love to see realized in print? Many artists will offer custom prints created right in front of you– either through printmaking, letterpress, screen printing, or printed fabrics– revealing their processes and answering questions about their work.

Vendors will all post up their wares in indoor spaces, so don’t shy away if the forecast is chilly! The event runs from 10am-6pm, so stop by throughout the day whenever you wish.
