May 4th 2012

The much anticipated exhibition of Deanna Krueger and Carl Wilen opens at ZIA|Gallery on May 4, 5 – 7:30. Deanna Krueger is noted for her unusual choice of painting surface (cut up pieces of recycled MRI film) on which she applies translucent color using monotype. She methodically staples the pieces together into patterns of color that move and play in the light. The works are at once mysterious, fascinating and meditative. Krueger is the recent recipient of the Helen V. Surovek Memorial Award and First Place Awardee Established Category for One Inspired Evening. Krueger’s large-scale works will share the gallery with a body of small-scale works by virtuoso Carl Wilen. These works demonstrated the varied explorations of an open and imaginative mind. While Wilen’s range is broad in scale, subject matter and use of materials, this selection of work presents an intimate study across an artist’s life. Wilen’s work has been exhibited in the Art Institute and the Illinois State Museum. Please join us in celebrating the talents of two individuals in varied stages of life as artists.

The exhibition continues May 4 – June 16, 2012. ZIA|Gallery, 548 Chestnut St., Winnetka, IL, 60093. The gallery is two short blocks from the Metra Train Station. Contact the gallery at 847-446-3970 and check out
