Art Against AIDS

Last week, the Art Against AIDS Preview Exhibition was removed from Gallery 180. The next chance to see and purchase the work is at the main event, which will be in one week... Thursday, February 26 at The River East Art Center. The exhibition and auction will include some seventy-five works of art donated by Artists from across the country. Included in the exhibition is a signed hand-pulled lithographic print by the late Ed Paschke as well as a "who's who" of Chicago Artists.

Some of my favorite works include: Carolyn Mullany's expressionistic "Stipe"; Brian Graves' exploration of the written word in "Material World"; Elvira Dimitrij's hard-edged abstraction titled "Yellow Screen" and Jason Messinger "Amber Magic" a wall-hung ceramic piece which also explores letter forms. You can see some of the pieces which will be available at the main event on Additional information for the event can be found at the Heartland Alliance web site. Tickets for the event are $125 in advance and $150 at the door.
