Quiet Summer

Sometimes life just happens. Not that long ago I was gearing up for a buzy summer full of events showing my art. Now due to a series of family emergencies everything has been put on hold or canceled. I am hopeful that I will be able to resume in the fall but right now everything is a wait and see situation.

We Burn gallery show starts this friday.

It's my first gallery show of 2011 and it's going to be Awesome! Artwork from over 30 different artists will be on display for the next 2 weeks for the  "We Burn: Chicago Burning Man Art" exhibition-


Monster Wheel Death Race and Chiditarod shopping carts are just two of the works featured in an upcoming exhibition called “We Burn: Chicago Burning Man Art”. The multi-media gallery show opens at the Flat Iron Building (1579 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL) on April 1. The opening coincides with the building's monthly First Friday event from 6-10pm. The closing party on April 16 from 6-10pm will feature an artists' reception, live music, performances, and light snacks. Both events will have art available for purchase.

Other Burning Man artist works will include photography, sculpture, video, works on paper, paintings, mixed media, installations, and performances. Burners are known for interactive art and for challenging the expectations of art enthusiasts. Burning Man is an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, drawing 50,000 artists into a harsh environment for a week of “radical self expression”. Chicago’s Burning Man Community numbers in the hundreds, and is known for high profile public art and events.

This show features work by Zac Franzoni, Phillip Solomonson, Marci Rubin, Maria Scileppi, Tim Krueger, Nichelle Lawrence, Gabriel Garcia- Fraire, Jeff Austin, Sara Egner, Michael Schiele, Pat Hilander, Sally Sachs, Elysia Lock, Chiditarod Art Carts, Monster Wheel Grand Prix, Richard P. Bennett, Ellie Sorokin, April Randall, Lera Gershevich, Leo Spektor, Alexa Razma, Sloan, Alan Rehbein, Ben Heise, Edible Alchemy, Eric Becker, Gordon Kummel, Karlis Kandero, and Seth Gershberg.

The building is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10AM-8PM. Artists in We Burn will be on hand on weekend afternoons from 2pm-6pm for the run of the show.

This event is made possible with generous support from the Bold Urban Renaissance Network and patrons like you.
