Did You See Heaven? WYSIWYG @ Peregrine Program

by Dana Bassett... "Peregrine Program is poised at a unique threshold of the Chicago art scene. While it’s certainly not an apartment gallery, located inside of an East Garfield Park studio building, the space lacks the sterile snap of a commercial space. The walls are white, but the exhibition space is rather small, best lending itself to one person installations and the viewing of small works. Usually, the openings spill into the hallway where artists congregate, converse and bump into each other while trying to enter the show. The current exhibition, Did You See Heaven: WYSIWYG, is the second of a series of thoughtful cu... [more]

David Salkin/ Room for Views in Newcity

...by Kelly Reaves in Newcity: On the surface, David Salkin’s “Room for Views” is a whimsical celebration of texture and pattern—a slight divergence from his work as an interior designer, but certainly not much of a leap. The difference, perhaps, is that in “Room for Views,” Salkin gets to let loose and create his ideal room, “with the hopes of discovering a therapeutic and highly customized environment,” says the artist. Upon further consideration, this whimsical celebration turns into a meditation on the arrangement of space. We are asked to pay attention to the many ways our material environme... [more]

Jon Waites: Radical, Work at PEREGRINEPROGRAM in Sixty Inches from Center

... by Pat Elifritz: On February 4th, PEREGRINEPROGRAM introduced Jon Waites’ newest solo exhibition. Radical, Work is a collection of works investigating the forms of an adolescent obsession with the architecture and constructed spaces of wheeled street-based sports. Ramps and inclines, shifted in scale and material, are relocated and arranged into a quiet obstacle course inside of the East Garfield Park artist-run exhibition space. Read more>> [more]

Jon Waites/ Peregrine Program in Newcity

... by Tara Quell from Newcity: Steeped in the art historical practices of Minimalism, Jon Waites’ solo exhibition “Radical, Work” combines his youthful preoccupation with skateboarding and the basic forms of the notable movement. The work challenges some basic assumptions of artistic practice, such as the sculpture/painting divide, while based in a vernacular of skateboarding. Read more>> [more]

Paths Individually Navigated

by Amelia Ishmael
Tim Louis Graham’s installation, “an unmumuring turn,” is a musing on the paths found in translation permutations and a response to PEREGRINEPROGRAM’s geographic location on the border of Chicago’s historic Chinatown. The exhibition's title is a line from Lao-Tsu's paradoxical Tao Te Ching. This text is represented near the gallery's entrance with an altered digital reproduction of the book's cover. The viewer’s experience of the exhibition is individually navigated. Painted a light chalky blue, the floor inverses  the sky and invites a step into the cosmos. Here there are dozens of vertically erect... [more]

While artistic experimentation has been a kind of tour-de-force, somewhere outside of painting, Waltemath has aggressively insisted that paint is still a frontier. It is left to wonder how obviously challenging her paintings and drawings appear to those who have no relationship with paint, given the balanced arrangement of lines and rectangles.  Yet the aesthetic discoveries in...
