Eyeporium Gallery Exhibition Opening
Opening Night is Friday, October 7, 2011
Eyeporium Gallery presents a group show for Chicago Artists Month. Alyssa Miserendino presents us with photographs of rooms from foreclosed / abandoned homes imbued with a poignancy born of personal experience. This Chicago series marks the beginning of what is now an international project. Lauren Whitney debuts in Chicago with her stunning photographs of both richly appointed room interiors and muscular building exteriors. Whitney created her own digital illustration techniques to embellish and revise the images for maximum impact. Lynn Tsan delivers design in its purest form. Wielding a computer mouse as deftly as a painter wields a brush, rhythms of saturated color are built up from small segments that form large panels. A body of work complete within itself, elements from this series influence her new work: architectural art – utilizing glass, aluminum, tile, and wood to create walls, windows, floors and surfaces.
Opening Reception (public invited) - Friday, October 7, 2011 from 7pm to 9pm
Exhibition - Through Wednesday, November 2, 2011.
