Andrew Ek is self taught painter living in Chicago. He is known for dark, sensual figurative paintings which could be described as magic realism. He studied Industrial Design Technology at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and has shown his work around the city and country, most recently at the Golden Triangle and Packer-Schopf Gallery.
Dana Toft, a Chicago native, has been painting over 30 years. Specializing in traditional and contemporary oil painting, Mr. Toft holds a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in english from Wabash College (Crawfordsville, Indiana). He maintained a studio at The Flat Iron Arts Building for 8 years (1998 – 2006) and is currently showing works throughout the city, most recently at Robert Morris College (downtown) and the Southshore Cultural Center. Mr. Toft’s paintings have been shown in galleries and museums throughout Chicago as well as many countries, including Switzerland, England and Thailand.
THIS EXHIBITION IS TWO DAYS ONLY!
We hope you can make opening night! Many of these paintings have never been shown in public and may never be shown again!
