Annette Turow and Linda Robinson Gordon have known each other for years and are even in the same Torah study group. But they are now connecting in a new way: through their art.
The exhibition “New Work,” featuring pieces by both Turow and Robinson Gordon, opens Sunday at the Evanston Art Center. It is the first ever joint exhibition between the two Chicago-area artists, whose collaboration, Turow said, was partly inspired by the fact that their recent works express similar attitudes toward the world.

Sculptor and School of the Art Institute of Chicago instructor Judith Brotman, 58, will be in residence at the Evanston Art Center this month. While sculpting is her love, she also developed a passion for another art form she calls public projects. With her latest work as part of the residency, Brotman will incorporate language and text to help create meditations on the power of words and conversations. Her participation in residency is a revival of a program called a reading project that she founded when she injured her hand three years ago and couldn't sculpt.
