Hinge Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a group exhibition January 14 from 6 – 9 pm at 1955 West Chicago Avenue featuring the work of six notable emerging artist curated by gallery director, Holly Sabin. This exhibition will include painting, drawing, and sculpture. There will also be a performance piece by Hannis Pannis at the opening reception.
New York based Corydon Cowansage (MFA Rhode Island School of Design, 2011) will be exhibiting large scale, minimal abstraction paintings of the domestic environment. Aaron Delehanty’s (MFA San Francisco Institute of Art, 2007) oil paintings deal with the urban environment in his dreamy representations of fictitious landscapes. Brent Houston (BFA School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2007) minimal cube sculptures challenge perceptions of three-dimensional objects in space. Charles MaHaffee’s (MFA School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2007) large scale charcoal drawings of text or forms obliterate original meaning through their obsessive repetitions. MaryKate Maher (MFA Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, 2004) references topography in the natural environment through her sculptures and drawings. Ryan Richey’s (School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2008) small scale paintings based on narrative vignettes from the artist’s personal history.
