Old Friends Make ‘New Work’ at the Evanston Art Center

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.

Shout Out: Judith Brotman, artist in residence at EAC

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.

Artwork talks at Evanston + Vicinity Biennial exhibit

Stunning. Startling. Thought-provoking. Evanston Art Center's 23rd Evanston + Vicinity Biennial exhibit is all that and more.

More than 400 entries were judged by Lela Hersh, president of Museum and Fine Arts Consulting; Monique Meloche, owner of Monique Meloche Gallery; and Lorelei Stewart, director of Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

"There was no particular criteria," Hersh said. "Certainly, innovation is always important. Is it something we've seen a lot? Does it seem like they're taking chances?"

Sixty-four pieces were selected.

Dialogue Chicago will celebrate 15 years as a community for local artists to practice and grow their crafts with an exhibit at the Evanston Art Center that will run through April 17. The community began in 2002 as artist Sarah Krepp’s post-grad seminar out of her home studio for artists in the Chicago area.

The exhibit features 12 Dialogue Chicago alumni who present art from a variety of disciplines, including photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media. The exhibit is titled “Dialogue Chicago: 12.”
