$100 LEVEL

For the past year and a half, Heavy Gel

  has been located inside the gorgeous facilities of  Limited Ink Studios , a community art space, home to 12 private artist studios.  In our residency there, we’ve built up a small community print shop, open to the public to come and use the print facilities for an affordable day rate or monthly membership. In addition we’ve taught a variety of intro and advanced screen printing technique classes and workshops. Public access print shops are few and far between in LA and we’d like to keep the community print shop open to provide affordable and accessible facilities to foster the small print scene in Los Angeles. The time has come that we must invest in some new equipment and supplies, and all money raised will go towards this modest goal as well as new programing for artist residencies, workshops, and classes.   we need:
- new power washer
- new exposure unit supplies (we are building it)
- screens
- ink
- transparency film
- emulsion
- paper/ shirts/ tote bags

This fundraiser will be ongoing throughout the month and will end with a print auction in the Limited Ink Studios gallery on July 22nd. 

All art sales will be pooled with the fundraising campaign and help support community art making.
