IALS October Gallery Opening: TRANSIT’s Back!!!

Last October, we showcased our new gallery space by celebrating Chicago Artists Month in partnership with TRANSIT Residency’s inaugural exhibition, Friends of Transit Print Invitational. Artists evoked memories of one’s explorations as they conveyed their passion for travel through their work. We had such a great turnout, therefore, we’re doing it again! TRANSIT Residency NFP is back in IALS this October.

We are more than thrilled to kick off the fall in partnership with TRANSIT by hosting their second print invitational and third annual exhibition, Building Blocks: TRANSIT’s Print Community. The reception will be held from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday, Oct. 4th, and the exhibition will run from Monday, Oct. 1st to Saturday, Oct. 27th, 2012. The gallery will be open 12pm to 6pm Tuesdays through Saturdays.

This year’s CAM theme is “Art Block by Block”. Printmakers showcasing their work include locals Marnie Galloway (Monkey-Rope Press), Jennifer Hines, Kathleen Judge (Judgeworks), Angee Lennard (Spudnik Press), Matthew Messmer, Rebecca Ann Rakstad (Rar Rar Press), and Jen Thomas (Veronica Press), and non-local printmakers from Hamilton Museum of Wood Type and Printing, in Wisconsin, and Hatch Show Print in Nashville.

Come mingle, drink some beer provided by our sponsor Beck’s, and snack on food samples provided by one of our local favorites and sponsor, D’Noche, as your eyes are captivated by the work displayed. See what emotions, ideas, and memories this year’s artists conjure up for you through their interpretation of “Art Block by Block”.
