Exhibition Dates: March 6 – April 25, 2020

Artist’s Reception: Friday, March 6 at 5:00 – 9:00 pm

“Rewired” is an intriguing solo exhibition of objects and drawings from wire that is found all over the streets and alleys of Marfa, Texas. Chicago artist Joe Davis picks it up and gives it new life as wall installations, dimensional objects, and graphite drawings. Joe says about his work, “The accidental shaping of it by being crushed under truck tires, and the rusty colored surfaces, and even the texture of it has become thoroughly engaging to me.”

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, March 6 from 5 – 9 pm. Come and meet the artist, see his visually engaging work, and enjoy conversation and refreshments. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibition runs through April 25.

“Full Circle”

“Full Circle”

Exhibition Dates: October 1 – November 23

Artist’s Reception: Friday, October 25, 5:00 – 9:00 pm

In her solo exhibition, artist Melissa Porter’s work is reflective of her life experiences and showcases her affinity for symbolism. Found treasures such as vintage clock cases, cigar boxes and photographs add their own character to the intimate story she narrates. In her work, you will find the influences of Joseph Cornell, Dwane Michaels, The Starn Twins and her travel experiences of different cultures and religions. Through her creative process, Melissa explores the concepts of permanence, boundaries, value and connection.

“Being an artist immersed in the creative process can at times be very isolating; because of that, much of my work reflects conversation I have with myself. It’s how I reflect on life’s events and conclude how I feel about my experiences.”

“My Paintings. My Way.”

“My Paintings. My Way.”

Exhibition Dates: August 10 – September 29, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, August 23, 5:00 – 9:00 pm

In her solo exhibition, artist Anita Stromberg explores different ways of expressing color, often by adding art papers, which creates an abstract mixed media style. Her work may have meaning, but she leaves much of the interpretation to the viewer.

Here’s a solo show that’s worth a serious look: Anita Stromberg’s “My Paintings. My Way.” at the nifty Color | Ink Studio gallery in Hazel Park. Masterful abstractions in acrylic and mixed media are a study in exuberance and control. Very fine work. —Michael Madigan
