Afternoon Tea with Jessica Sladek

Saturday, Dec 15, 2018 2 – 5:30 pm

Please join us December 15th between 2pm to 5:30pm for afternoon tea to meet and chat with Jessica Sladek!
Enjoy artisanal tea from Spirit Tea and learn about Sladek's newest series Wait-a-While, including how drinking tea and walking influence her artistic practice.  

Jessica Sladek's work is guided by a desire to envision our environment without idealization.  In this brand new body of work, Sladek's large-scale photographs capture Australia's Daintree Rainforest. Wait-a-While invites the viewer to become entangled in a lush, sometimes terrifying, and complicated realm where one may pause, wait, and see what emerges.

Jessica Sladek (American, b. 1981) is a photographic artist based in Chicago, IL whose work explores human relationship and experience with the natural world, and the ways we represent nature in landscape.  Sladek earned her MFA in photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2017, an Associate Degree in commercial photography from Harrington College of Design in 2006, and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts Degree from Carthage College in 2003. She received the Stuart Abelson Fellowship in 2017, and is the current Artist Fellow at the Arts Club of Chicago.

Exhibition runs until December 29th, 2018
