Special guest

Amy Leners is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Chicago, IL. She holds a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Iowa and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Book, Paper and Print from Columbia College Chicago. Her work is in collaboration with forgotten spaces, exploring our relationships to architecture and space, specifically our homes and how the possible ephemerality of these spaces affects our psyche. Using handmade site specific pigments, alternative photography processes, printmaking and handmade paper she creates works that are made by and of these spaces.

Amy is also a co-owner of Fata Morgana Press a print shop and craft collective on the south side of Chicago.

FM combines traditional craft processes and design to create experimental books and prints, build research-driven brand identities, and collaborate with artists on letterpress and offset printed editions.
