Exhibit: Helena Engle and her Converging Divergences
Thankfully, the last serious attempt
by the Palette and Chisel
to keep up with the perpetual avant garde
was back in 1915.
(and even then, it was mostly tongue in cheek)
But, let's face it,
there are 25 contemporary artists in Chicago
for every square foot of gallery space,
so why not let some of them show
their work at 1012 N. Dearborn?
This show was curated
by Helena Engle
(that's her piece above the fireplace)
Other artists include:
Anastasia Mak, Benton Lenz, Brad Pogatetz,
Deirdre Fox, and Peter Gray
Freedom of expression is a wonderful thing.
But I'm certainly glad
this kind of show
is the exception
rather than the rule
at the Palette and Chisel.
(which is, itself,
an exceptional institution,
will stay that way)
