April 6, 5-8p, join us for the opening of Kathy Halper’s solo exhibit "What a Day it's Been" at 1100 Florence in Evanston. Halper will be showing work created over the past two years, as well as some embroidered pieces.
A series of six paintings explore the angst and absurdity of our political climate. Embracing Russia's recent influence in our lives, I used the culture's beautiful folk art for my inspiration in creating these narratives.
Other new works use discarded Amazon boxes as my primary material. Painting, gluing, printmaking and carving work together to create unique stories of my life.
The show runs thru April 22. There is an artist talk scheduled for Sunday April 14 from 3-6 pm.
