This is the final week to visit the Paula Kloczkowski Luberda and Michael Van Zeyl exhibition at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago. The exhibition features Kloczkowski Luberda's coil built, abstract stoneware vessels along side of the figurative and still life paintings of Van Zeyl.

The abstract stoneware vessels created by Kloczkowski Luberda address the material source as concept itself—exposing and embracing the subtle flaws of the medium. Not mass-produced by machine, the subtle imperfections make reference to our own humanity... expressing strength, power as well as vulnerability.

The classical imagery of Michael Van Zeyl explores the human form as well as traditional still life. The subjects are rendered within a painterly atmosphere—where light defines form—to create compositions of classic mastery.
