Opening Saturday, September 15th, from 5:30PM - 9PM
We are pleased to inform you of an upcoming group exhibition, Insignia, featuring recent work by Chicago-based artists, Jan Pieter Fokkens, Jeffery Cote de Luna and Mike Nudelman.
These artists share a reverence and optimism for the reproduced image. Appropriating popular and often recognizable imagery from news websites, scientific articles and art history textbooks, they re-charge and reconstruct seemingly ubiquitous images with paint and pen.
We hope that you’ll join us for the opening reception:
