    Descriptive info: Alisa Savage.. Appendages.. clay, low-fire glazes, stains.. 15 x 35.. 5 x 8 inches.. $1,000.. Third Prize.. It is the pairing of things unexpected that runs throughout my work; the combination of something that is a bit awkward or unnatural with something that is familiar and  ...   combinations that seemingly do not belong together.. By manipulating and playing with the parts, I can take a familiar object and change its meaning, have it serve another purpose, or give it a new identity.. I control the outcome and decide what s beautiful.. (Seattle, WA)..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Michele Fitzsimmons at the Art Institute.. with Photography by Diane J.. Schmidt.. Imaging + Printing: Peter Jones.. September 6 - October 24, 2013.. For a larger view and/or more information, click on the thumbnails below:.. Michele Fitzsimmons.. Prior to being an artist, I was a Playboy Bunny.. For seven years I called myself Bunny Kitty.. I made good money, had insurance, saw a shrink, went to school and Playboy paid because bunnies were teamsters.. I left Playboy in 1979 with no bankable skills.. I had studied theatre for six years and joined a theatre company.. But I got mixed reviews.. I even got a bad waitress review in the Chicago Tribune (“Our waitress sucked.. ”).. 1979 is also the year I began working on ‘The Chicago Exhibition’, a book of sixty nude photographs of Michele Fitzsimmons taken by Diane Schmidt in various Chicago locations.. In ‘The Chicago Exhibition’ my job was to disrobe in public places and each time I did, I relived my nightmare, the one where I wake up crying because I’m the only one naked at school.. Every time I posed nude in public I survived, and we got a picture.. After ‘The Chicago Exhibition’, I wrote and performed one-woman plays and then received a BFA in studio arts and an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute Chicago.. I spent a semester in France in a medieval mountain village taking pictures of sculptures students left behind.. I used to say I am a poet and actress but now I say collagist and memoirist.. Even though I have a Masters from the Art Institute, I have been down to my last dollar many times.. Making a living as an artist has been as hard as I thought it would be way back when I worked at Playboy.. Back to my childhood… When I was little, I saw a cartoon in the Saturday Evening Post of a nude.. I turned the page then turned back again then showed Mom.. I was titillated.. That is the only word.. After that I toyed with modesty and had visions of becoming a Carmelite nun but did not like what they wore and how would I twirl my baton.. ” - For more information visit.. www.. michelefitzsimmons.. com.. Diane J.. As a writer and photographer now based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Diane J.. Schmidt covers social and environmental issues in the Southwest, writes  ...   France by Melrose publisher Jeff Dunas.. The photos were immediately exhibited and written about internationally.. In 1987 she received a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Arts Fellowship for photo essays of the city at night published by the.. Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine.. , and later taught photography at Columbia College.. Since moving to the Southwest in 1992, she has photographed and designed four books for the Navajo Nation, taught creative writing at the University of New Mexico, and published a regular column, numerous articles and radio commentaries.. Schmidt received a MA in English at the University of New Mexico, a BFA in Photography from RISD, and a BA in Comparative Literature from Prescott College.. Contact Diane J.. Schmidt at dianeschmidt22@hotmail.. com, 505/890-8363.. Read her stories at.. http://www.. examiner.. com/judaism-in-albuquerque/diane-schmidt.. , follow at.. https://twitter.. com/dianeschmidt22.. and link at.. linkedin.. com/pub/diane-schmidt/56/315/1a5.. Peter Jones.. Michele Fitzsimmons at the Art Institute is a collaboration of 3 artists across a span of 30 years.. One summer afternoon in 1981 Michele Fitzsimmons and Diane Schmidt did a daring photo shoot in the galleries of the Art Institute for their groundbreaking book ‘The Chicago Exhibition’.. Out of 72 images shot only three photographs were published.. Thirty years later Michele thought there might be further images and stories in the unused shots.. Our window back to that afternoon was two 20 x 24 contact sheets that contained all the images made in that intense, panicked, fun photo shoot.. The digital prints in this exhibition are all out takes.. In some, only minor corrections and cleaning were done.. In others, the full force of Photoshop has been used to combine and remake images in the hope that some new light can be cast on that distant afternoon.. Peter Jones has a BFA and MFA in printmaking and drawing and has worked as a master printer in traditional printmaking.. He taught at East Carolina University and Loyola University of Chicago before opening his own studio and gallery on the North side of Chicago in 1978.. The Peter Jones Studio and Gallery eventually grew into a three-ring circus of art, involving hundreds of artists exhibiting, working studios, performance.. Jones closed the gallery in 2009 and now works on his own art and as a master digital printer.. He has worked with Michele on several projects in the past.. Michele Fitzsimmons at the Art Institute is their latest collaboration.. - For more information visit.. peterjonesgallery..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Brenna Conley-Fonda: A Way of Closing My Eyes.. July 12 - August 22, 2013.. About the Artist.. Brenna Conley-Fonda is a Chicago-based multimedia artist working primarily in installation and photography.. She is a graduate of School of the Art Institute and has shown work at Threat Level, Roxaboxen, Sullivan Galleries with Chicago Torture Justice Memorial Project, St.. Louis Women’s Caucus for the Arts, and Schwarzer Kanal in Berlin.. Her work has also been featured in an essay by Mary Patten entitled.. What is to be (UN)done: Notes on Teaching Art and Terrorism.. About the Exhibition.. These drawings made of hair are derived from photographs taken by soldiers working at Abu Ghraib  ...   highly political.. I refined my rendering of these images down to the specific act.. I utilize the surrounding white space to pose un-answered questions: What is left out? What feels familiar about these pictures? Whose hand is directing the image? Tactically the hair makes the viewer directly aware of one’s own body.. From a distance one can look at one of the drawings and observe what may appear to be delicate pencil lines, collectively creating an image.. When examined more closely one can see that the lines are a collection of hair.. It is a push and pull between horror and fascination that closely models my own reaction to the source pictures..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Robin Hustle.. Robin Hustle is an artist and writer from Chicago.. Her visual art addresses sex, labor, language, and health, and has been exhibited in group shows at Gallery 400, Roots and Culture, Roxaboxen, and Woman Made.. She has self-published the zines.. Mirror Tricks.. ,.. Curdled Milk.. , and.. Leftovers Again?.. and co-edited two free journals,.. The Land Line.. and.. The Skeleton News.. ; she currently writes a regular column on sex work for Jezebel.. My latest work is permeated by bodies and spaces that may seem in contradiction with one another, some incarcerated and stripped of consent while others move freely through each  ...   their physiological and emotional needs, shortening the distances between them while acknowledging and accommodating their separateness.. Food and sex, mobility and structural integrity, consumption and decay are rearranged into patterns built on principles and on pleasures.. As in my past work, no body is present as metaphor or allegory, but as its own complicated self in relation to other complicated selves.. None of this work was made alone.. For their love, conversation, and technical support, I would like to thank Jonathan York, Carrie Vinarsky, Danimal Luedtke, Edie Fake, Fionnuala Cook, Mat Defiler, Ruby Thorkelson, Angela Fegan, Morgan Rozacky, Vanessa Harris, Megan Milks, and Nancy Klehm..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Kay Hartmann: What s wrong with this picture?.. May 10 - June 20, 2013.. My goal in creating the work for this show is to ask women who know or love someone who’s had breast cancer, “What’s wrong with this picture?”.. When I got my diagnosis of breast cancer several years ago [thankfully I’m fine now], I wanted to know as much as possible about this disease, what causes it, what, if anything, cures it, and what the survival rates are.. Why has the incidence of beast cancer among American women increased so alarmingly? Why, when we have spent so much money on breast cancer treatment and research, do we still know so  ...   to know the answer to these questions.. However, I do think that we urgently need to address them.. More than 20 years ago, my best friend from college died from breast cancer.. Nancy’s death, plus my own experience and the suffering and loss of too many friends provided me with the incentive to create this show.. As a graphic and information designer, my job is to take complex information and organize it in ways that people can understand and use.. Hopefully, I have succeeded in asking the right questions.. This work was first exhibited in 2012 at Blink Gallery in Michigan City, Indiana.. -Kay Hartmann, Associate professor, art + design, Columbia College Chicago..
