The Rebecca Moy Reception at Gallery 180

The Rebecca Moy Exhibition opened this past Friday, at Gallery 180, with a wonderful reception catered by the Culinary school of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago. The Moy exhibition consists of eight large-scale canvases, elegantly manipulating the spacial relationships of line, form and color. If you're in Chicago's Loop, this is a "must see" exhibition. The show continues through January 17th.

Gallery 180 is free and open to the public. All works will be available for purchase. Gallery 180 is located at 180 N. Wabash—at the corner of Lake and Wabash—in Chicago’s Loop. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 8am-8pm; Friday, 8am-5:30pm and Saturday 9am-5pm. Additional information can be found at

Nancy Rosen ~ More is More

I received a call from Artist, Nancy Rosen last week. We haven't talked in awhile and she wanted to get together. She told me that she had an exhibition up and that she wanted me to see it. And so I did.

The show—of more then 100 paintings—was hung in an unconventional space on West Hubbard. Hung salon style—in a number of rooms—the variety of paintings offers the viewer some insight of Rosen's figurative journey. Covered with patterns and textures, the nontraditional renditions of women—primarily of their relationships with other women—cover almost every wall of the industrial loft space. A well-attended reception was held last month but their is still time to experience the work by appointment. If interested, contact Nancy Rosen through her web site
