Midway through our first winter, the Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center Gallery is pleased to have exhibited works by nine CIADC members in the first two exhibits at 6433 North Ravenswood Avenue.
The first exhibition at the space Architecture: Form and Feature included works by Janet Austin, David Curry, Victoria Fuller, Emily McCormick, and Victor Nelson, and was a program partner of the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial. Works in the show investigated forms and features of architecture while presenting these elements in the context of indoor objects.
The current installation at CIADC The Cast and Fabricated Metal Object: 6 Months in Review features new works by David Curry, Alan Gelman, Emily McCormick, Peter Mikalajunas, Dan O'Brien, and Jeffrey Visotsky. The exhibit showcases two very different approaches to creating 3D works that are very prominent at CIADC - metal casting and metal fabrication.
If you haven't already stopped by the gallery space to check these works out in person, The Cast and Fabricated Metal Object will be on display through Sunday, February 28, 2016. The following exhibit will showcase creations by CIADC instructors, and will open with a CIADC reception and event during the afternoon on Saturday, March 19, 2016.
In addition to studio access and education, CIADC is very invested in community - and we want to know what everyone is up to outside of our own space! If you have exhibitions, installations, public works, artwork, work-work (or whatever-have-you) upcoming, please share it with us by emailing Nathan via firstname.lastname@example.org.
