Current Exhibitions

Kaye Buchman: Around the Whirled

April 1 to May 7

Around the Whirled is a collection of nature-based works by Chicago-based artist and educator Kaye Buchman. This grouping of large-scale pen and ink drawings, mixed-media paintings, and thematic artist books represents spaces, places, forms and concepts related to the expressive and destructive energies found in our embattled ecosystems. These works were developed through years of sketchbook research, the study of fairytales and vintage illustration, and an ongoing dedication to the vast and unrestrained world of visual discovery. 

Kaye Buchman received her BFA in Printmaking from Illinois State University and her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows nationally, received numerous awards, taught at many institutions including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and attended several artist residencies. She is the founder and director of KB Studio, an urban center for arts education and imaginative projects.

Jimmie Nord: Elevated Topography

April 1 to April 30

Jimmie Nord's work is influenced by his background in forestry, natural resources, and art movements like German Constructivism, Bauhaus, and The Memphis Design Movement, along with a splash of Surrealism. He explores materiality and form, looking to express elemental qualities of specific materials. Elevated Topography is an unrealistic portrayal of how we might overcome rising sea levels. The concept of scaffolding and construction materials used is meant to illuminate the challenges we face moving forward and the necessity to think beyond our current solution methods.
