Time: 4:30pm - 7:30pm CDT March 15
Location: H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art
The opening reception for “At Home” will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., on Thursday, March 15, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art. This event is free and open to the public.
In this exhibit, Chicago artists Gwendolyn Zabicki and Anne 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.
