Evanston Art Center Presents Permeated Surfaces (All Day)

The Evanston Art Center invites the public to the “Permeated Surfaces” Opening Reception on Sunday, August 10, 1-4pm.

Exhibition: Permeated Surfaces

Dates: August 10 – September 21, 2014

Opening Reception: Sunday, August 10, 1 - 4pm

Gallery Hours: Monday – Thursday: 10am - 9pm; Friday & Saturday: 10am - 4pm & Sunday: 1 - 4pm

The Evanston Art Center’s “Permeated Surfaces” exhibition is a highly anticipated event of artistic musicality and fluidity. Alison Svoboda’s raw edges of torn paper, Cydney Lewis’s twisted bits of discarded plastic, and Sandra Perlow’s layering of printed and painted paper, creates movement permeated with notes of dissonance. Organic forms and sensual shapes echo in these three artists’ works, manifesting in both 2 and 3-dimensional pieces.

Alison Svoboda is a Chicago-based artist who draws inspiration from natural forms, fractal patterns, and Buddhist imagery. After receiving her B.A. in Design from Purdue University, she developed a process that joins an impulsive method of ink drawing and a meditative system of collage into large works that evoke a “meditative dream state, searching for completeness and self-unity.” In addition to her studio practice, Allison teaches at Lill Street Art Center. She appears in shows across the country and recently completed the Brush Creek Residency in Wyoming.

 

Cydney Lewis is an artistic polyglot. She began her formal training with a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Chicago Urbana-Champaign. She studied a diverse background of classes in film design and performing arts, eventually leading to an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. All these elements are present in visual artwork, which transforms three-dimensional materials into storytelling devices. She explains her oeuvre, stating, “I try to create a world I want to live in.” She was recognized twice by the Museum of Science and Industry and has recently shown at Sharks Are Born Swimming, South Suburban College in 2013 and Layers, Paths and Channels at the Chicago Artist Coalition in 2012.

Abstract painter and prink-maker, Sandra Perlow, has an M.A. from the Illinois Institute of Design as well as an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work draws on a broad cannon ranging from Chinese brush painting to Phillip Guston in order to create “pictorial membranes” that explore her interest in accumulated layers of history. The “energetic shuffling and sorting of memory, text, sound and image” that characterize her process is highly visible in her pieces, in which “motifs are concealed and revealed through veils of color as decorative surfaces are echoed in painterly patterns and improvisatory mark-making.” She frequently shows individually with Chicago Galleries, including the Dubhe Carreno Gallery, and recently appeared in The Artist Project group exhibition in New York City.

 

Permeated Surfaces opening reception has a suggested $10 donation.  Galleries are free and open to the public. Limited parking is available.

Exhibition funding provided by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, and the EAC’s general membership.


The Evanston Art Center is located at 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL.

Evanston Art Center Presents Permeated Surfaces (All Day)

The Evanston Art Center invites the public to the “Permeated Surfaces” Opening Reception on Sunday, August 10, 1-4pm.

Exhibition: Permeated Surfaces

Dates: August 10 – September 21, 2014

Opening Reception: Sunday, August 10, 1 - 4pm

Gallery Hours: Monday – Thursday: 10am - 9pm; Friday & Saturday: 10am - 4pm & Sunday: 1 - 4pm

The Evanston Art Center’s “Permeated Surfaces” exhibition is a highly anticipated event of artistic musicality and fluidity. Alison Svoboda’s raw edges of torn paper, Cydney Lewis’s twisted bits of discarded plastic, and Sandra Perlow’s layering of printed and painted paper, creates movement permeated with notes of dissonance. Organic forms and sensual shapes echo in these three artists’ works, manifesting in both 2 and 3-dimensional pieces.

Alison Svoboda is a Chicago-based artist who draws inspiration from natural forms, fractal patterns, and Buddhist imagery. After receiving her B.A. in Design from Purdue University, she developed a process that joins an impulsive method of ink drawing and a meditative system of collage into large works that evoke a “meditative dream state, searching for completeness and self-unity.” In addition to her studio practice, Allison teaches at Lill Street Art Center. She appears in shows across the country and recently completed the Brush Creek Residency in Wyoming.

 

Cydney Lewis is an artistic polyglot. She began her formal training with a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Chicago Urbana-Champaign. She studied a diverse background of classes in film design and performing arts, eventually leading to an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. All these elements are present in visual artwork, which transforms three-dimensional materials into storytelling devices. She explains her oeuvre, stating, “I try to create a world I want to live in.” She was recognized twice by the Museum of Science and Industry and has recently shown at Sharks Are Born Swimming, South Suburban College in 2013 and Layers, Paths and Channels at the Chicago Artist Coalition in 2012.

Abstract painter and prink-maker, Sandra Perlow, has an M.A. from the Illinois Institute of Design as well as an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work draws on a broad cannon ranging from Chinese brush painting to Phillip Guston in order to create “pictorial membranes” that explore her interest in accumulated layers of history. The “energetic shuffling and sorting of memory, text, sound and image” that characterize her process is highly visible in her pieces, in which “motifs are concealed and revealed through veils of color as decorative surfaces are echoed in painterly patterns and improvisatory mark-making.” She frequently shows individually with Chicago Galleries, including the Dubhe Carreno Gallery, and recently appeared in The Artist Project group exhibition in New York City.

 

Permeated Surfaces opening reception has a suggested $10 donation.  Galleries are free and open to the public. Limited parking is available.

Exhibition funding provided by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, and the EAC’s general membership.


The Evanston Art Center is located at 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL.

Evanston Art Center Presents Permeated Surfaces (All Day)

The Evanston Art Center invites the public to the “Permeated Surfaces” Opening Reception on Sunday, August 10, 1-4pm.

Exhibition: Permeated Surfaces

Dates: August 10 – September 21, 2014

Opening Reception: Sunday, August 10, 1 - 4pm

Gallery Hours: Monday – Thursday: 10am - 9pm; Friday & Saturday: 10am - 4pm & Sunday: 1 - 4pm

The Evanston Art Center’s “Permeated Surfaces” exhibition is a highly anticipated event of artistic musicality and fluidity. Alison Svoboda’s raw edges of torn paper, Cydney Lewis’s twisted bits of discarded plastic, and Sandra Perlow’s layering of printed and painted paper, creates movement permeated with notes of dissonance. Organic forms and sensual shapes echo in these three artists’ works, manifesting in both 2 and 3-dimensional pieces.

Alison Svoboda is a Chicago-based artist who draws inspiration from natural forms, fractal patterns, and Buddhist imagery. After receiving her B.A. in Design from Purdue University, she developed a process that joins an impulsive method of ink drawing and a meditative system of collage into large works that evoke a “meditative dream state, searching for completeness and self-unity.” In addition to her studio practice, Allison teaches at Lill Street Art Center. She appears in shows across the country and recently completed the Brush Creek Residency in Wyoming.

 

Cydney Lewis is an artistic polyglot. She began her formal training with a B.S. in Architecture from the University of Chicago Urbana-Champaign. She studied a diverse background of classes in film design and performing arts, eventually leading to an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. All these elements are present in visual artwork, which transforms three-dimensional materials into storytelling devices. She explains her oeuvre, stating, “I try to create a world I want to live in.” She was recognized twice by the Museum of Science and Industry and has recently shown at Sharks Are Born Swimming, South Suburban College in 2013 and Layers, Paths and Channels at the Chicago Artist Coalition in 2012.

Abstract painter and prink-maker, Sandra Perlow, has an M.A. from the Illinois Institute of Design as well as an M.F.A from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work draws on a broad cannon ranging from Chinese brush painting to Phillip Guston in order to create “pictorial membranes” that explore her interest in accumulated layers of history. The “energetic shuffling and sorting of memory, text, sound and image” that characterize her process is highly visible in her pieces, in which “motifs are concealed and revealed through veils of color as decorative surfaces are echoed in painterly patterns and improvisatory mark-making.” She frequently shows individually with Chicago Galleries, including the Dubhe Carreno Gallery, and recently appeared in The Artist Project group exhibition in New York City.

 

Permeated Surfaces opening reception has a suggested $10 donation.  Galleries are free and open to the public. Limited parking is available.

Exhibition funding provided by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, and the EAC’s general membership.


The Evanston Art Center is located at 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL.

Chicago Philharmonic Presents Nordic Sounds (7:30 pm - 9:30 pm)

“To hear or not to hear?” is the question as the Chicago Philharmonic takes your ears on a journey to Denmark. We begin with the Overture to Hamlet, Tchaikovsky’s dramatic portrayal of the famous Danish Prince. Then Danish violinist Christina Åstrand performs the Midwest premiere of the exhilarating Romantic-era violin concerto of her cherished countryman, Niels Gade. You may swat at the air around your ears when you hear Arvo Pärt’s most whimsical work, If Bach Had Been a Beekeeper. We close this program with Denmark’s best known composer (and best kept secret), Carl Nielsen. His First Symphony is unforgettable and highly accessible; Nielsen’s youthful and vibrant energy explodes in the very first bar and never lets up. Danish folk music will be performed in the foyer before the concert, and a collection of Danish cultural objects, provided by the Danish Pioneer, will be on display.

Tickets are $25-$75, and $10 for students. Student tickets are only available by phone or at the door.
