22, a new design studio and multi-use creative space in Berwyn, is proud to announce its first gallery exhibit, Blank Page, on display from January 27 to February 5. The exhibit features work from nineteen artists and designers, half from within the Chicago area and half from elsewhere. The variety of work presented in the Blank Page exhibit speaks to the variety of backgrounds, experiences and points of view of the artists represented. It also speaks to the blurring of media, techniques, and identity in the contemporary art and design landscape, themes we hope to address at 22 in more depth in future exhibits and events.
As a studio and creative space, 22 has two goals: to showcase the work of emerging and established artists from within the Chicago area, and to bring innovative, informative, and challenging work to our community, through a combination of studio practice and various events and exhibits. Blank Page is the first of these exhibits. Blank Page serves as an opportunity to introduce the Berwyn and Chicago communities to 22 in general, and as an opportunity to highlight the work of a variety of artists and designers. Just as the 22 studio space presents a blank page for future events, this show presents a blank page of opportunity for our artists.
