Nathan Mason is an artist in Chicago with a day job.

He exhibits occasionally, most recently at Compound Yellow. He has been in group shows at Klein Artworks, Rhona Hoffman Gallery, and NAME, among others.  He has curated numerous independent projects for spaces ranging from Beret International to Margin, his own short-lived apartment gallery.
