In the main gallery we welcome back one of our favorite artists, Ken Keirns. Ken has been working hard on a new series of paintings under the title Short Stories. We can't wait to share this new body of work with you in what will be Ken's eighth solo exhibit in our gallery! Shown above is Slow Jam (detail)....that's a short story we'd love to read!

Join us for the opening reception on the evening of Friday, November 11, 7-10pm and you'll have a chance to chat with Ken who will be in attendance, plus we'll have snacks and beverages (BYOB if you want beer or wine), not to mention awesome music courtesy of DJ Sean Doe.

FlipBooKit Show: Chicago
November 11-December 4, 2016
BYOB Opening Reception November 11, 7-10pm

Not content with one awesome exhibit in November, we've also got new works going up in our side gallery...something a little different...the Chicago edition of the FlipBooKit Show

What's a FlipBooKit, you ask? FlipBooKit is a DIY hand-cranked movie-loop machine that displays your own video or animated art. It’s a great maker project and it makes for a great gift, easy for any creative aged 8+!

For the exhibit, FlipBooKit inventors Mark Arnon Rosen and Wendy Marvel have curated a selection of artist-designed FlipBooks, all of which will be on display with special motorized FlipBooks! This one will be a fun, lively exhibit that you don't want to miss, plus we'll have DIY FlipBooKits available and will also be hosting a workshop (details below) with Mark and Wendy if you want to jump in and make your own!

Featured Artists: Brandon Sines, Cassia Lupo, Chema SKandal!, Cindy Suen, Clem Stamation, Csaba Klement, Elaine Chen, Eric Fleischaeur, Heather Cardone, Jaime Giraldo, Jeremy Tinder, Julia Liu, Ken Keirns, Kim Lu, Laura Berger, Michael Hsiung, Nate Bear, Patrick Burnell, Rachel Koukal, Ramiro Davaro-Comas, Shawn Cheng, Tony Rabit, Travis Lampe and Victor Kerlow.

Join us for the opening reception on the evening of Friday, November 11, 7-10pm and you'll have a chance to chat with Mark and Wendy who will be in attendance, plus we'll have snacks and beverages (BYOB if you want beer or wine), not to mention awesome music courtesy of DJ Sean Doe.

Works will be available to purchase at the gallery beginning at 11am on Friday, November 11 or via email starting at 2pm the same day for members of our Gallery Previews List (sign up here).

Inspired to make your own FlipBook? Join us the next day after the opening for a special workshop with the inventors of FlipBooKit!

FlipBooKit Workshop, Saturday, November 12, 2-4pm
Wendy and Mark will take you through the process of building your FlipBook Box from the provided FlipBooKit Craft kit, and then help you create your own hand-cranked FlipBook animation from a video!
