Figure Showcase at Cole's Bar at 2338 N Milwaukee, Dec 3, 2017 through February 2017, is a show curated by Tracy Kostenbader and features the work of 10 artists from Figure Tuesdays, a weekly figure session that has been held in Kostenbader's studio space, Cole's Bar, and Township Bar over the past few years. Gretchen Hasse and Andrea Kaspryk have served as coordinators of these sessions.
At the large group show of bicycle theme art work, the 20th Annual Chicago Winter Bike Art Show at the Convert Loft Space (3036 N. Lincoln Ave), I contributed 2 paintings that I did not finish for last year's show. More than twenty artists contributed works in various mediums -- two dimensional and sculptural, paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, re-purposed and redesigned bicycle parts, and there was even a sculpture bicycle cake that was eaten by attendees.
The organizers and curators of this annual show, Steven Lane and Stuart Hall, deserve special mention and thanks for offering this show (and a number of previous shows) and exhibit to the arts community and to the bicycle community of Chicago.Read More
