The singularity of identity in each of Pyle’s drawings takes us to a very different place. On the surface, his cartoon-like characters seem anything but beautiful. Humor and playfulness are a first reaction. But his subjects do not simply exist only to entertain. With their epidermis stripped away, turned inside out, we behold visages of a sinew, muscle and bone reveal. Pyle lays bare the co...   [more]

More than 19 years ago, Catherine Edelman Gallery moved out of its second floor gallery to the lower level of 300 W. Superior Street, doubling its footprint. In 2005 it expanded again, adding an additional 1200 sq. feet of exhibition space. Now in its 26th year, CEG is running out of storage space. To help alleviate this problem, we’ve decided to mount Framed & Ready, a rotation of gallery...   [more]

Shane Huffman is swimming to the Moon. If ignorance of the laws of nature is the basis of superstition, there's an element of deliberate superstition in Huffman's willful revision of cosmic order. Huffman reinvests interplanetary space, drained of mystery by the imposed order of cosmological description, with something "extra and other." Using photography as an investigative process that works with three c...   [more]

Miller & Shellabarger use gunpowder and black oil sunflower seeds to outline their bodies and hands. Both materials hold immense amounts of energy, even when distilled into diminutive containers, and are utilized for their rich metaphorical connotation. One is used to feed the flame. The other is left as feed. Each poured out to trace their forms, each consumed and gone like the bodies they once...   [more]

The Painter’s Other Library is a meditation on silence. The quiet of the library is evoked in the paintings as well as the history of the building and the galleries that house the exhibit. Themes in the work are also drawn from research into the Holocaust and the destructive program of the Nazis. While none of the work in the show explicitly states any of these histories, the formal choices o...   [more]

Using ready-to-assemble components from the global home-furnishings store Ikea, Jeff Carter repurposes them into architectural models that are simultaneously familiar and a bit off-kilter. His constructions explore the formal vocabulary of Bauhaus architecture while also considering the dilemma of modern material culture: can mass-produced consumer goods be “good” design? Which is more...   [more]

Through a variety of media and approaches, the artists in Nice Work If You Can Get It address the vital pocketbook issue of how citizens sustain themselves in today’s global economy.
