our beautiful planet, and the changes and challenges we  face with her.

Show:  April 28 – May 24, 2016 by appointment.                                     climate change

Opening: April 28   7 -9 pm.

Artists Talk: April 29 5:30 – 7 pm, ‘Global Climate Change from an artist eye’, by Mary Edna Fraser, whose last co-authored book addresses that very topic.

Ms. Fraser is an artist who highlights environmental concerns in large silk batiks which are often based on maps, satellite images, and the photographs that she takes while flying in her family’s 1946 propeller plane. Deemed a “pilot with a palette” by Michael Kilian of the Chicago Tribune, this is Fraser’s first Chicago exhibit.  Mary Edna Fraser’s art has been shown in major galleries and museums in the US and around the world, and we feel very lucky to have her visit and show her work here.

Michelle Stone sculpture consists of recycled, simple materials, such as string, wire, paper, and plaster. Her art is a commentary on the state of our planet revolving around the natural process of growth, transformation and decay.  Ms. Stone’s is a member of Ceres Gallery NYC collective and had several solo shows in Chicago.

Diane Jaderberg is a Chicago artist whose ceramic sculptures, explore and utilize textures, shapes, surfaces, following the constant movement and change in nature.  Her work was last exhibited at the Hyde Park Art Center during   “Nature’s Matrix” show last summer.  Her forms are inspired by creatures of the sea and land, reflect her excitement of capturing the organic moment in clay.

Alan Emerson- Hicks’ artwork is about transformation. He collects plastic commonplace objects and societal detritus; bottles, grocery bags, caps, and video tape using them to make sculpture. He wants to give “life” to mundane items, hopefully changing the way we dispose of what we have no use for at the moment.

In his work hangers transform into a giant “precious” diamond, bottle cap rings become fragile “glass” constructions and grocery bags become startling colorful towers.

His work is a commentary on what society views as important or unimportant. Towers
