Opening Reception on Friday, August 12, from 6-8pm at the Silverroom for “Time to Rise”, our new art exhibition by Myron Laban.
Exhibition Title: Time to Rise
Some of our most impactful and lasting lessons come from times of struggle and the fortitude to overcome them. We’re rewarded with the ability to see ourselves make it to the other side while appreciating the new growth along the way. Chicago visual artist and pharmacist Myron Laban embraces this perseverance in Time to Rise with a series of colorful acrylic paintings. Infused with earthy tones and warming figures, Time to Rise surrounds Laban’s focus on perseverance and healing, and through their work we’re reminded of the gratitude following transformation. We welcome viewers to embrace the therapeutic sensibilities Laban has offered in Time to Rise on view August 12 – September 9.
