    Descriptive info: Mary Stoppert: Reliquaries: A Matter of Measure.. August 24 - September 27, 2012.. About the Artist.. After earning her MFA in Sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Mary Stoppert taught at Northeastern Illinois University for thirty years, chairing the art department for two years, and serving as gallery director for fifteen years.. Stoppert’s lengthy exhibition history includes the New Museum in New York, The Art Institute and Museum of Contemporary in Chicago, and nearly all points between.. Stoppert was a founding member of Artemisia Gallery and also the Chicago Women’s Caucus for Art.. She is the recipient of many awards, including an NEA grant, the Art Institute of Chicago’s John G.. Curtis Prize and the Frank G.. Logan Award.. Her work is in many private and public collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), Cincinnati Museum of Art, and the State of Illinois.. In addition, Stoppert has served as an instrumental advisor, curator, and mentor to Woman Made Gallery and gallery staff since its inception.. About the Work.. Having been an artist for over thirty years, this recent work has qualities and elements that speak to that experience.. Educated as a sculptor, I am naturally attracted to three-dimensional form..  ...   had for almost forty years.. It is bittersweet parting with them, but I believe I have created suitable environments for each object to continue on in a new and more exalted context.. Each piece is unique because I begin with an object and build the piece around it.. I develop each reliquary as though someone else is making it for him or herself or a valued person.. All objects are genuine and authentic, not reproductions.. All objects are as found they have been not altered except to permit display.. This is my second and most current reliquary series.. Each found item that I used has as its premise or inspiration, the element or function of measure: time; distance; space; surface.. My fascination with devices that measure became apparent when working on Tirettes Epuise es, the first piece in the series.. My studio and woodshop has always been full of measuring devices.. I have watched the evolution to digital devices over the last few years and realize that most of them will be obsolete.. With this realization, I began to look for tools and devices that could be considered a relic if not now, in the very near future.. For more information visit.. www.. marystoppert.. com..

    Descriptive info: M.. E.. Ware: Ritual Regalia for Contemporary Living.. May 4 - June 21, 2012.. Ware is an interdisciplinary artist and educator.. She employs irony and humor in her art to expose the deficiencies of modern ideology and social discourse with regard to the human desire for meaning and a purposeful life.. Ware is Associate Professor and the head of Sculpture at Central Michigan University in Mt.. Pleasant, Michigan, where she teaches a wide variety of studio and critical theory courses.. In 2009, Ware was Artist-in-Residence at Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark.. She is committed to research and teaching and conducts lectures, presentations and workshops at national conferences, seminars and universities.. ”This body of work consists of wearable and conceptually wearable garments designed to illuminate contemporary society’s need for ceremony and ritual as well as to question the commodification of spirituality.. These garments and their display mechanisms use irony  ...   roles and job inequity, consumer debt, product poisoning, health care, natural resources and environmental destruction.. Each ritual garment is exhibited with a set of “Art-a-facts” that provide statistical information regarding the particular issue each piece addresses.. The Art-a-facts are not explanations of the works or their intent, but serve to create a dialogue among the viewers by confronting them with disquieting information while seducing them with visually lush, densely detailed objects.. Ritual Regalia for Contemporary Living serves as a visual and conceptual nudge to remind us that ideology is more than a series of cultural assumptions.. It makes us subjects; we are subject to it, so that we serve culture rather than culture serving us.. ” We see ourselves as autonomous and free, but the limits of our freedom have always, already been delineated by the ideology that provides the border of our tunnel vision (Thomas Perry).. mewsculpture..

    Descriptive info: Sarah Hahne: Metta: A New Look at the 4 Rs of Consumer Waste.. May 4 - June 21, 2012.. Sarah Hahne has studied printmaking, painting, anthropology, comparative literature, and art education.. She has exhibited widely in the Chicago area in several solo exhibits and numerous group shows, including shows juried by the late Ed Paschke and as well as Judy Chicago.. Hahne has work in private collections throughout the United States.. She has received degrees from Beloit College and the Art Institute of Chicago.. She has also studied at the University of Illinois, Chicago campus, and the Leo Marchutz School of Painting and Drawing in Aix-en-Provence, France.. ”The focus of this body of art is the 4 Rs of consumer waste: reduce, reuse, recycle, and reclaim but the underlying theme is Metta.. Metta is a 2,500 year old convocation.. It is a 4 part thought, wish, or blessing that is sent out in 4 tiers, starting with the self and moving outward.. In this work I have made a connection between the 4 aspects of Metta and the 4 Rs of consumer waste management.. As an artist, when I begin to look at a thought pattern or set of  ...   these thoughts.. The metaphor, or Metta-4, for me, is the journey.. The personal, the heroes’ journey is one that we all take step by step throughout a lifetime.. It is incredibly personal, unique, and individual.. Each person’s personal life’s path or journey is absolutely original, and yet repetitious through a set of templates and patterns.. The metaphor of the journey is best seen, for me, as a map but a map that is embedded in the art of the Oriental rug, the Persian garden, the mandala, and especially the quilt - particularly interesting because often there is not a central focus, rather each block has its own focus and works together as one.. The original quilts were also the ultimate expressions of the 4 Rs the final artistic creation was a byproduct that gave warmth and beauty.. The “quilts” I make are really maps, in my mind, but they are maps that are an ironic homage, a reminder that we have strayed from the original purposes of living with and in our world.. My personal Metta is a wish that we all come back home to ourselves and conduct our journey with safety, equanimity, health, and joy.. ”.. http://www.. SNHahneArt..

    Descriptive info: Kaitlin Kostus: The One Who Rises.. March 2 - April 26, 2012..

Stories, symbols, and deities from these Baltic countries are re-interpreted through her contemporary viewpoint.. Artificial neon colors collide with images of nature, while real deer antlers do so with semi-natural materials like industrial wood and jute twine..

    Descriptive info: Claudia Kleefeld: Patterns of Nature: The Spiral and Interconnectedness.. Claudia Kleefeld is a performance artist and painter living and working in Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico.. Utilizing practices similar to the Surrealists, the Spiral emerged as the primary focus of my work over three years ago, based on received information from my conscious and subconscious mind.. The Spiral now prevails in my iconography.. For example, RC Israel, who introduced me to Dennis Hopper, sat for me after I went to Hopper’s memorial; I drew his ear, which is a Spiral form, unwinding that story.. Soon, I began noticing the Spiral in everything, and my process became exclusively about understanding this form and its meaning.. My research, and creation of imagery linked with text, has led  ...   direct correlation between people, introspection and self-discovery, the creation of energy, action and interaction, which exists in the individual and the universal on a scientific level both physically and ethereally.. The spiral unfolds as being one of the most potent forms in nature’s patterns.. My art has long since been concerned with an interdisciplinary approach to art-making.. During my studies at UCLA, I began to experiment with performance art.. As a dancer, I explored movement by incorporating models, sound, photography, video, spoken word, the written word, and figurative imagery.. I continue to make art that considers my humanness.. Today, I connect the individual’s journey and the external world together through nature’s symbols.. kleefeldart.. com/spiral-catalog.. html.. Artist s Talk.. March 4, 2012 from 1 to 3 p..

    Descriptive info: Ulli Rooney: New Works.. November 4 - December 22, 2011.. Born in Riga, Latvia Ulli Rooney is presently living and working in the Chicago area.. She earned her Diploma in Painting in 1961 at the Akademie der bildenden K�nste, in Munich, Germany.. Rooney has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo shows throughout the United States and overseas.. She was awarded two Illinois Arts Council Artists Fellowships, a Studio Residency in Stuttgart, Germany, and an Academic Exchange Service Fellowship to Paris, France.. She is currently represented by Fassbender Gallery.. My paintings are about color, color pairing and the interaction between calligraphy and color field.. Looking at one of them what you might first notice is the layered glossy surface and a broad field  ...   has a drying time that puts it right in the middle between the faster drying acrylics and the slower drying oils.. This gives me a surface that stays workable for an entire day and that I can overpaint within two or three.. Whatever I do has to be done in a single day�s session, and each of my paintings is developed over the course of several such sessions.. What changes and what stays the same from one session to the next? In a way each day represents a whole new start - almost a whole new painting.. However, there is always an impulse or concept that stays with a painting and drives it, from its very beginnings until the very end.. -Ulli Rooney.. fassbendergallery..

Waterloo received her BFA at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL in1996, and has studied  ...   �My works are architectural fantasies which attempt to record the urban/urbane/mundane observances I see on a daily basis.. With an approach towards monumental simplicity - given any scale - an elevation, floor plan, or structure becomes a vision construed in space.. Recent inspirations have been mapquest routes, artists whose work is architectural and architects whose work is art, woodwork, rodeo bucking chutes, Chicago urban landscapes, international airport floor plans, architectural elements from travels to England, Italy, Hong Kong, and Spain, inner cardboard packaging (tectiforms), and an Illinois Army National Guard sign.. �.. kathleenwaterloo..
