Roots of the Community: April 20th 4-7 Opening

The newest installation, Roots of the Community, features the artwork of senior artists living and creating in the 47th ward.

Many of the exhibit’s contributing artists are members of the Senior Artists Network (SAN), a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting and fostering the talents of Chicago-area artists age 50 or older. The installation’s artwork spans the spectrum, from dramatic photographs and urban-inspired oil paintings to mixed media, pastels, mosaic and water color. The array of artwork is both stunning and varied, and it testifies to the talent and diversity of the seasoned artists living in the neighborhood. The public is invited to mingle with the alderman and his staff, the local community and the artists to discuss their works at the opening reception on April 20th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. The exhibit is co-curated by Sylvia Garcia and Carolyn Bull, and runs through May 15th.

Featured artists: Meredith Dytch, Mike Barret Kolasinski, Ann Ponce, Judith Roth, Kathleen Beste, Beverly Alice Nash, Petr Poliak, Carolyn Bull, Bill Bartelt and Patricia Larkin Green. The Chicago Mosaic School also has contributed a piece to the show.
