Cat Bowyer, Artist in Residence
@ Baby Blue Gallery
2233 S Throop St, suite 518, Chicago, IL 60608
Opening Friday, April 8th, from 6PM - 9PM
Join us Friday, April 8 from 6-9pm as part of Expo Chicago’s Art After Hours to view works in progress from Baby Blue’s inaugural winter residency. While the gallery was closed to the public, we invited artist and educator Cat Bowyer to utilize the gallery as a studio. Through ritualistic modes of making, the gallery became a temple where she created altars of play. The works are in part satire of patriarchal institutions, but also represent a survival technique through the pure joy of play. The icon of a column ‘composed under pressure’ represents the constant stress and uneasiness in professional life and womanhood. This program will present some of Bowyer’s works ahead of the culminating exhibition later this spring.
