We're excited to announce that for our December 2019 exhibit Jeremiah Ketner will be back with a solo show!

For BYOB, we are steps away from Beermiscuous, one of Chicago's best craft beer shops — 350 cold beers and ciders (over 200 local beers!) are available in a singles format, allowing you to create your own mix-and-match variety pack for the event!

Exhibit continues through January 5, 2020.

September Exhibit: James 'Jimbot' Demski

Hullaballoo
New Works by James ‘Jimbot’ Demski
September 7-29, 2019

BYOB Opening Reception
Saturday, September 7, 7-10pm

September brings the return of own of our favorite artists for his fifth solo exhibit in our gallery!

James Demski is a Milwaukee-based artist also known by the moniker “Jimbot.” His art takes you into other worlds where the unusual can happen, beauty is around us, and your daydreams can become a reality. What exactly is happening is often left up to the viewer’s interpretations and how they view the clues left behind by the artist.  He creates these worlds to escape to, and for the viewers to enjoy. James uses acrylic paint, dry transfer letters, pencil and ink to convey his thoughts, and wants the viewer to enjoy them as much as he enjoyed painting them.

In other words, get ready for more awesome blending of nature, animals and....robots!

Join us the evening of Saturday, Sepmber 7, 7-10pm for the opening reception of “Hullaballo.” We'll have music by DJ Sean Doe, plus complimentary snacks and soft drinks...and if you'd like to BYOB, we're just across the street from the wonderful Beermiscous!

Jimbot will be in attendance at the opening reception so stop by, check out the art and say hi!

Exhibit continues through September 29, 2019.

Sign up for our gallery previews email list at http://previews.rotofugi.com for first notification when artwork is available online.
