Amanda Gentry: Expanding

@ Hyde Park Art Center

5020 S. Cornell Ave., Chicago, IL 60615

Opening Sunday, October 6th, from 3PM - 5PM

On view through Sunday, November 24th

Emerging artist Amanda Gentry unveils a new series of nine works in the exhibition titled Expanding, which explores the pillow as a metaphor for the mental and physical weight of the human experience. Gentry’s repetition of hundreds of swollen and sealed vessels has a restless, uncanny effect, while her delicate use of color and soft materials render the unconscious state of sleep. Featuring some objects made in the Art Center’s Cerf Hill & Sagan Ceramics Classroom where Gentry took classes, the exhibition marks the first major solo show for the artist.
