This can be seen live tomorrow at A.R.C. gallery in Chicago, in the show “You Lookin’ at Me?” The theme of the show, as stated on the website, is this: “This exhibition will celebrate what we honor and admire and/or what we fear and disdain about ourselves. We are seeking images that deal with these issues. We seek to present a cast of characters. We want to feature various kinds of depictions, stylizations, comic book portrayals, straight portraits, abstractions, or however else you imagine yourself.”
It should be a great show. I’ll be at the opening tomorrow night, I hope to see you there!
Here’s a video from the ARC Gallery 40th Anniversary Exhibition. It was great to reconnect with women from the gallery! I also attended a panel discussion the day after the opening. Past and current presidents were there to answer questions about the history, present and future of the gallery.
My piece is at 1:46-1:51 in the video, bottom right corner of the frame.The show is up for the next month so if you are in the Chicago area looking for something to do, stop by and see it!
ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a women’s art gallery in Chicago, IL that has been going strong for the past 40 years. I have had the privilege to be a member and associate member back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. I think I was an associate member at the time of their 30th Anniversary. Although I haven’t been an active member in several years, this galley holds a special place in my heart. I was thrilled to be invited to be part of their 40th anniversary member’s show. The opening night is Friday, September 27. The photo doesn’t do the piece justice, so you’ll just have to come out and see it in person, along with the work of about 100 diverse women artists of all ages and walks of life. I am looking forward to seeing some folks I haven’t seen in a long time!
