Galerie F enters the art culture of Chicago through a declaration of unity. Send Me Your Pigeons is a showcase of printmakers under the theme of “communication and community.” Street art and printmaking, our two finest passions, are forms of expression that thrive on reception and interaction with outside viewers. These forms of art survive through communication. We want to unite the artists with their audience, the language with the work, and the local community with the national community.
This show is a literal representation of the possibility of art and community transcending distance. We bring you three major artists from across the nation –
John Vogl of The Bungaloo from the west
Landland from the Midwest
and Casey Burns from the east
These artists all maintain an intimate tactile process in their printmaking, from translating watercolor paintings to working closely with hand-drawn sketches. The show’s theme draws together their unique printmaking styles under the context of community and accessibility.
The show’s opening is set for July 20th, from 6pm to 10pm at our official Galerie F space at 2381 N Milwaukee Avenue.
