January 18, 2024 - March 31, 2024
Reception: March 28, 4pm - 7pm
Uncommon Threads is an exhibition featuring work from Gilly Langton, Brooke Marks-Swanson and Myung Urso. Each artist transforms and reinvents fabric to create one-of-a-kind, wearable artworks. And in doing so, quite literally weaves the history of textiles and fiber arts into contemporary art jewelry. All three artists are renowned for their craftsmanship, and have their work in numerous museums around the world.
Join us for the reception on March 28th in our River North gallery to celebrate the exhibition! This is a fabulous opportunity to meet the artists behind the work and enjoy light refreshments.
The Strength It Takes To Be Alone
April 4, 2024 - May 26, 2024
Reception: April 12, 4pm - 7pm
The Strength it Takes to be Alone extends a heartfelt invitation to those who have experienced the profound struggles of isolation. This exhibition showcases Yong Joo Kim's sculptural wall installations and wearable art pieces, evoking a sense of connection, introspection, and resilience.
Time and Again
May 30th, 2024 - August 18th, 2024
This exhibition features work from Elisa Bongfeldt, So Young Park, and Emily Rogstad. Each artists' creative practice involves repetition, a deliberately labor-intensive process. Smaller elements of each design are made over and over again to build a larger, unified piece. Obviously time consuming, this exhibition aims to highlight and celebrate the incredible craftsmanship each artist boasts.
From the Garden, From the Grave
August 22nd, 2024 - November 10th, 2024
Featuring work from Kelly Jean Conroy, Carin Jones and Meghan Schmeidel, this exhibition addresses the dichotomy of life and death.
Can death be beautiful? Challenging the notion that death can only be melancholy and not something exquisite, the work in this show will include imagery of plant life and animals in all stages. On one hand, we have blossoming flowers, birds flying and lively insects. And on the other, we have the macabre, with imagery that confronts death. The aim is to illustrate how multi-faceted death is. It can be poetic, even sublime, and at the very same time, bleak and depressing.
Valentine's Day Event
February 10, 2024
