Weekend Art Walks: West Town Galleries

Saturday, Mar 18, 2023 11 am – 1 pm

927 Noyes St. Studio 222, Evanston, IL 60201

Join Joanna Pinsky to explore stimulating gallery exhibits in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood! Meet at Rhona Hoffman Gallery to delve into “….and Friends,” Brooklyn artist Derrick Adams’ colorful, mixed media paintings and functional sculptures referencing the influence of early educational television programs. These intimate paintings in custom-made frames feature Black children with puppets, prior to an awareness of society’s racism. Then, at Western Exhibitions, we’ll discuss Richard Hull’s “Mirror and Bone,” featuring large, biomorphic paintings that shift between abstraction and figuration. We’ll discuss this prominent Chicago artist’s recognizable visual vocabulary, which incorporates art historical references into his distinct painterly style. Next, on the same floor, we’ll see Brooklyn artist Meg Lipke’s first Chicago show at Document Gallery, featuring mixed media works that skirt the boundaries between painting and sculpture. We’ll conclude at Andrew Rafacz Gallery to view their two-person exhibition of Chicago artist Cody Hudson and San Francisco artist Richard Colman. Both artists use bold color and hard-edge shapes in their graphic paintings.
