Event Date/Time

Apr 2, 2014 to May 7, 2014
9:00 am until 6:00 pm

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Christian Helser explores the convergence of the cinematic, pop culture and pedestrian life in his paintings. By alternating loose brush strokes reminiscent of Fauvist paintings and those of J.M.W. Turner with controlled representation, Helser’s work reveals that popular culture is not only autobiographical but draws an affiliation of identity through signifiers consumerism. Ricardo "NACO" Gonzalez is an artist from Blue Island, Illinois (near south side Chicago) with a B.F.A. from the American Academy of Art. Gonzalez participates in areas/neighborhoods in which inhabitants may not always get exposure to art. The artist teaches in art centers, schools, and informal spaces to better communicate his abilities and pass along his appreciation for the arts.
