Opening Reception: December 16th 5-9 PM
Andrea Jablonski is a Polish born multidisciplinary artist based in Chicago.
Jablonski spent her 20s traveling the world. She spent extensive time exploring the culture and history of Northern Europe, the Eastern bloc, many parts of Asia, and settled in Australia for a time before returning to the US.
In her 30s, Jablonski toured the US, playing bass and singing in several bands. Most notably, she formed and fronted a doom metal outfit, Rabid Rabbit that earned critical acclaim. She has performed in almost every state and played many festivals, including SXSW.
Now in her 40s, Jablonski has spent the last few years honing her artistic aesthetic as a painter and fabricator. Her work includes site-specific installations, wall pieces, sculptures and murals. Her use of diverse materials to bring ideas from concept to creation, as well as her hands-on approach, have helped her secure a wide variety of clients and projects.
She has earned many grants and merits, including being named one of the Chicago Reader’s People Of The Year 2011 and a featured artist for Chicago Artists’ Month 2014.
She continues to exhibit regularly and organize/curate events when possible.. Jablonski has worked with many community arts organizations, including Elastic Arts, Arts Of Life, Opera-Matic and After School Matters.
She also hosts an Eastern European themed radio program on Lumpen Community Radio once a month.
