Kathy Weaver + Mary Porterfield: Morality Tales
@ Firecat Projects
2124 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
Opening Friday, February 24th, from 7PM - 10:30PM
On view through Saturday, March 18th
Firecat Projects presents “Morality Tales,” a two person exhibition featuring the work of Mary Porterfield and Kathy Weaver. Porterfield’s drawings address when to accept what cannot be changed, especially when caring for those in need. Weaver elaborates on the treatment of others through various depictions of Aesop’s fables, each providing a lesson of morality. With Porterfield’s history as an occupational therapist and Weaver’s work with community activism, both artists bring their personal views to a show of narrative works that address values in today’s world.
In a time when connectedness and compassion seem absent in so many of the world’s tragedies, both artists provide an alternative viewpoint, concerned with how we can treat others in a more individualistic and respectful manner.
Morality Tales is sponsored by Will Frame It and Moller Financial Services.
A catalogue of work from this show will be for sale with essay by Robin Dluzen.
