DESCRIPTION

The exhibition, "Forms and Fragments', incorporates the work of four Chicago artists - Nikki Renee Anderson, Shelley Gilchrist, Donna Hapac, Mimi Peterson.  Each artist presents their subjective approach and use of earth's materials, each possesses an innovative and distinct process, each produces an end product which is made by hand.  The collective works  transcend the indices of references to ordinary materials such as wood, clay, fiber in it's unique form of material/object orientation.  They express a narrative about identity and gender issues and nature and man-made environments.  The exhibition hopes to further define itself in terms of the exhibition space.  Given that the lobby is the physical crossroads and gathering place for visitors and guests, we intend that the artwork will stimulate lively dialogue with the hotel audience and become an important part of this open forum.
