Grace Church of Logan Square is pleased to announce Billy McGuinness as the artist-in-residence for the Fall/Winter season of Studio 3325. Please join us in welcoming him with a small reception and viewing of his work on Saturday, October 22nd from 6-8pm. Open studio hours with the artist will take place one Sunday a month during the residency from 11:30am – 12:30pm and public programs in conjunction with the artist will be announced separately.
Billy McGuinness engages in a project based art practice that focuses on human connection. He uses artmaking as a way to create empathy and understanding of what he sees as the three most pressing issues of our time: hunger, homelessness, and mass incarceration. In his own words, his work is meant to “reflect on and address the physical, spiritual and psychological consequences of public policy, how we meet or deny needs, alleviate or exacerbate suffering.”
