Reception: Breaking Criminal Traditions at the Beverly Art Center, May 3rd 7-9pm

Please join me for the reception of "The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions" at the Beverly Art Center, this Saturday, May 3 from 7-9pm. The exhibition includes; paintings, drawings, prints, photography and sculpture by fifteen accomplished fine artists. They include: Corinna Button, James Deeb, Sheila Ganch, Clair Girodie, Sergio Gomez, Andrea Harris, Paula Kloczkowski Luberda, Richard Laurent, Kathy Liao, Zoriah Miller, Nancy Rosen, Lorraine Sack, Valerie Schiff, Barbara Simcoe, and Anne Smith Stephan.

The exhibition was created to raise awareness of global criminal traditions. Criminal traditions are ancient, ongoing rituals that kill or maim millions each year, yet are rarely considered crimes. Each piece of art included in the Breaking Criminal Traditions exhibition has been selected to allude to these issues without being overtly obvious. The content of the show walks a blurred line between the horrifying reality of the world in which we live and the intense beauty of empowerment and freedom.

The Beverly Art Center is located at 2407 W. 111th Street, Chicago, IL 60655 The exhibition continues through May 18th. Learn more at: BreakingCriminalTraditions.com
