Artists’ reception for Dialogue Chicago

Community members are invited to attend the opening artists’ reception for Dialogue Chicago's art exhibition, “Taking Chances: NO/YES?,” on March 8 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Second Floor Gallery of the Noyes Cultural Arts Center.

The new art installation will be on display from March 8 through April 12.

Dialogue Chicago is an interdisciplinary forum made up of visual artists participating in aggressive studio practice. Artists working in a variety of disciplines, including painting, sculpture, print-making, photography, mixed media and more, come together to discuss the expansive possibilities of their work.

Through group critiques, field trips, studio visits, and more, artists are able to develop their work and transform their ideas.

Sarah Krepp, exhibition curator and founding director of Dialogue Chicago, is an artist, Professor Emeritus, and former Chair of the Painting Program at the School of Art and Design, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Krepp shows her artwork locally at Roy Boyd Gallery in Chicago.

Work from various artists will be included in the “Taking Chances: NO/YES?” exhibit, including Matt Bodett, Sara Ellis, Susan Emerson, Jen Evans, Judith Roston Freilich, Barbara Heaton, Elyse Martin, Tom Miller, Cynthia Pacyk, Dimitri Pavlotsky, Lilach Schrag, Eleni Sianis, Casey Sills, Megan Sterling, Annette Turow, Kathy Weaver, and Margaret Welsh.

During the event, light refreshments will be served. Admission to the reception and exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

For more information about the opening reception, please call Cultural Arts Coordinator Jennifer Lasik at (847) 859-7835 or visit the city's website.

This program is sponsored by the City of Evanston and supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
