Current Exhibition

At Home

March 12-April 20, 2018

Opening Reception: 4:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 15
Artist Lecture: 5 p.m., Monday, March 19

Chicago artists Gwendolyn Zabicki and Ann Toebbe paint through the pat routines and relatable spaces of home life. With images reciting the daily tedium of chores and household activities, the substance of “At Home” is a reflection on social and anthropological constructs of our domiciliary spaces. The subtle wryness of Ms. Zabicki’s surfaces reflect upon the systemic congruency between cleaning a mirror and painting an image of that very same act. Ms. Toebbe’s deceptively flat paintings, drawings, and collages conflate complex compositional spaces from experience and memories of domestic settings.
