"Lady in Red" ...Nancy Rosen
Currently on display, at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago, is a wonderful exhibition of mixed media pieces by Nancy Rosen. This exhibition of figurative works—with complex patterned backgrounds—opened on July 27 and will continue through September 10th. I've written at length about the beauty and depth of this show in past posts. It's an amazing body of work and people seem to be drawn into the space, after catching just a glimpse from the street.
Well, September will soon be here and the Rosen show will be removed to make way for the National Juried Exhibition titled "red". And while Rosen collects the current work from Gallery 180—or at least the pieces that remain—she will also be dropping off yet another incredible piece... "Lady in Red".
Rosen's "Lady in Red" can be seen—along with the works of thirteen other artists from around the country—at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago from September 14 through November 11. The Reception for "red" will take place on Friday, October 9th from 5:30-7:30. Gallery 180 is located at the corner of Lake and Wabash in Chicago's Loop. The exhibition is free to the public and all works will be available for purchase. Additional work by Nancy Rosen can be found at nrosen.com
