Guest Juror and featured artist, Kelly Mathews, a Chicago artist has been awarded an Individual Artists Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, for her project; Being Bipolar in a Polarized World.

Kelly states, “Mental Illness can be tragic and heartbreaking. This exhibit is meant to celebrate those of us who see things a little different and offer you a peek into our world.” Her series, Trigger Wall, highlights the outside forces, images, and symbols that affect her reactions, while Dear Texas and Dear Supreme Court express her powerful reactions to current events. 

The Galleries at TAC is proud to be the first to exhibit this profound work in conjunction with The Thin Line Exhibition, a juried call open creating a dialogue about the world of artistic expression, breaking stigmas, and celebrating difference. 

Funding for exhibitions generously provided by The Jackie Sabath Exhibition Fund: Marla & Rich London and The Robby Norris Charitable Foundation, The Illinois Arts Council and The Highland Park Community Foundation.
