Elephant Room Gallery is excited to present their first Blues inspired art exhibition to bring in the New Year. The exhibition features artwork by 8 Chicagoland area artists that is inspired by Blues music and musicians of the past and present. The exhibition features a dynamic collection of work from paintings of Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf to abstract guitar sculptures to portraits of the patrons in a Blues club.
The exhibition was purposely scheduled to coincide with the Buddy Guy January Shows that happen every year at Buddy Guy’s Legends next door. “We love Blues music here at the gallery and we often go to Buddy’s next door for lunch or dinner and to hear great live music. It seems like a great way to start off the new year and immerse ourselves in the spirit of Blues music in the South Loop.” – Kimberly Atwood, Director of ERG
Exhibiting artists include Erik Lundquist, Nicholas Barron, Anitra Frazier, Joseph Bowlby, Nina Menduni, Tamara Wasserman, Vernell Garrett and Victoria Fuller. The exhibition runs January 5th through January 28th with open hours on Thursdays 1pm to 6pm and Saturdays 11am to 5pm. A reception will be held on Saturday, January 14th from 6pm to 9pm where guests will be able to meet some of the exhibiting artists.
