Inspired by an interest in a wide range of love stories, Judith Brotman and Karolina Gnatowski work to curate their pieces together as lovers, friends, and any relationship in between. Adult Contemporary offers the dramatic stage for these stories to unfold. A catalog accompanies the show with warm thanks to Claudine Ise for her contributing essay. Catalogs are still available upon request.
For Threewalls winter 2012 edition, we offered a special edition featuring artist-designed place-settings. For $400, a share includes a full setting, all hand-made by Chicago contemporary art luminaries; a unique placemat by Karolina Gnatowski, bowl by John Preus, plate by Christine Tarkowski, and cup by Mindy Rose Schwartz. Works come packaged in a picnic basket. Contact lauren (at) three-walls (dot) org for sales.http://www.three-walls.org/
"Where My Cones At?" is curated by Chicago-based artist Ryan Travis Christian. This exhibition features over 100 artists, all responding to a seemingly simple request- contribute one small-scale, unframed, black and white artwork. The result is a staggering array of work in a variety of media, produced by a wealth of both emerging and internationally acclaimed artists. Christian, himself a widely exhibited artist, frequent curator and occasional DJ, had the following to say:
“A lot of these artists are friends, people who I have worked with or people that I admire. Our circles cross paths in many degrees and the roster of artists is more or less a giant pool of nepotism. Many of them depend on color and I thought it would be interesting to present them with a challenge; others already make top-notch monochrome work. I thought this would be a fun summer show, and a chance to give San Diegans in-person exposure to artists that otherwise don't usually show in the area.” – RTC
