Exhibition: A Perfect Balance

This is not a solo exhibit for Susan Anderson, but once again hers are the only paintings that interested me.

She's  one of the club's - and Chicago's -  best painters.

Accompanying this exhibit, was  her list of favorite painters:

Renato Muccillo, Marc Hanson, Mitchell Albala, Tibor Nagy, TJ Cunningham, Josh Clare, Tim Horn, Mike Weis, T. Allen Lawson, John  Redmond, Thorgrimur Einarsson

I am embarrassed to say that I do not recognize a single one except for Tibor Nagy (and that's only because a man with that same name began a famous modern gallery in 1950)

But I'd love to see her curate an exhibit of them in the Palette and Chisel galleries.

Both real - and  dream like.

I love it.

Some day, high end painting will no longer be required to show dismay, despair, confusion,  alienation, or perversity.

When that happens -- she, and the artists she likes,  will receive broader recognition.
