On Friday the Brickton Art Center had its exhibit opening for their fourth annual Abstract Show.
Several FUSEDChicago artists were represented, so it was also a fun gathering of friends.
Curated by Ahavani Mullen, the show had a variety of media represented.
The show runs through July 29. The art center is located at 306 Busse Hwy, Park Ridge, IL 60068.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm, Fridays from 9 am to 4 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm (closed on Sundays).
I enjoyed the vibrance of color choices and the contrast of whimsy vs. more serious themes.
FUSEDChicago artists represented are: Carol Hamilton, Rebecca Stahr, Carol L. Meyers, Pat Lagger and Cindy Lesperance.
Representing other art mediumsÂ are Jordan Acker Anderson, Patrick Carr, Brian Franczyk, Jung J. Jae, Megan Woodard Johnson, Kathryn Kane, Guntis Lauzums, Julia Levin, Ara Lucia.
As well as Mark P. McKernin, Jane Michalski, Bridget Mullen, Mark J. Palmeri, Adriana Poterash, Sara Risley, Kat Rodriguez, Camille Silverman, and Courtney E. Thayer.
There was lots of texture to admire.
Kenna Delmar’s work played shadowgames.
Josh Anderson also incorporated shadow effects in his work.
Tim Abel’s installation added a festive element.
