Making Out in Tall Grass

@ Special Feature

2860 W Warren Blvd, Chicago IL 60612

Opening Saturday, March 26th, from 6PM - Late

On view through Sunday, May 22nd

Special Feature is pleased to present Making Out in Tall Grass, a joint exhibition of ceramic works by Anna K. Crooks and Harry Kuttner. This collection of sculptures moves through both artist’s psychic clutter (jumbled memories, lingering feelings, domestic objects amassed, song lyrics persisting…), giving physical form to feelings of longing.
Is there a word for the feeling of missing something you saw in a dream?

Please join us March 26th from 6pm till late for our opening reception.

Anna K. Crooks is a poet and potter, working in Baltimore, MD. In her work, Anna tries to piece together scraps of phrases, images seen online, and vague memories into an inelegant collage. She is a studio member and teacher at The Potters Guild of Baltimore, and has worked as a curatorial member of Open Space Gallery. She has most recently exhibited at Gormley Gallery and Baltimore Clayworks. Her work has been featured in Unica Magazine, Baltimore Magazine, Bmore Art and Baltimore City Paper. Anna received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013.

Harry Kuttner lives and works in Chicago, IL. His practice consists largely of ceramic vessels and sculptures that explore real and imagined personal narratives. He has exhibited at Comfort Station and Tusk in Chicago, IL, Ski Club in Milwaukee, WI, and the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, MD. His functional ceramic and bolo tie project, Rock Pile Western, has been featured in Buddy (Chicago, ongoing), PMF VIII (Baltimore, 2017), and Medium Cool (Chicago, 2015). Kuttner received a BS in Environmental Geology and Studio Art from Beloit College in 2014.
