ARC Gallery – Consciousness of Abstraction

Screen Shot 2020-02-24 at 6.20.34 PM copy

I am delighted to announce that one of my drawings, “Mirage” was accepted in the juried exhibition, CONSCIOUSNESS of ABSTRACTION : Beyond Literal Appearance that will be held at ARC Gallery in Chicago from March 4 to 28, 2020. I will not be attending the opening because I am creating in my Sarasota studio this winter. However, I have seen the other artists’ works that were accepted and it will be a really good show. I hope you will be able make a visit.

Here is curious tidbit of info. I have shown at this gallery in the past. We are speaking of a really long time ago in the past. Post grad school when I moved to Chicago pursuing a career as an artist, I participated in ARC’s Illinois Women Artists Invitational held in 1977. As many of you know, sometime after that I got side tracked working as an art dealer for 30 plus years. Now back as a full time practicing artist, my life continues to come full circle.

About ARC Gallery.

If you don’t know much about ARC Gallery, the website is full of information about the gallery and its exhibition program. They say it best, “ARC Gallery, a non-profit women’s cooperative gallery, has been an integral part of the Chicago art scene since 1973. Exhibition opportunities for innovative and emerging artists exist today, to an extent unheard of for women 46 years ago. ARC Gallery’s ongoing contribution to this movement has given exposure and support to countless artists through its alternative space, providing a rich environment for the development of their artistic potential, experimentation and dialogue.”

Artist Run Galleries in Chicago.

Chicago is still a city where artists take exhibition opportunities into their own hands just as ARC Gallery did. From Chicago Gallery News, “Chicago has a national reputation as a center for artist-run spaces, and this spring the history of that reputation in an examination of the current landscape will be on view at the Hyde Park Art Center, which just announced it will celebrate the work of 50 artist-run spaces and organizations that fuel Chicago’s independent art scene in the upcoming exhibition, Artists Run Chicago 2.0 this April.”
