War & Peace Exhibit

The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council sends us this notice:


War & Peace Exhibit
Opening Receptions & Informal Conversations
Thursday, November 12th and Friday November 13th
5:00 pm – 9:00 pm (both days)
TH!NKART SALON
1530 North Paulina Street, Suite F
Chicago

The War and Peace Exhibit is free and open to the public. To RSVP, or to receive more information, email thinkartsalon@gmail.com or call 773.252.2294 x305.

Join us for the opening receptions and conversations for TH!NKArt’s latest exhibition, War & Peace. This exhibit features new paintings and works on paper by David Gista, Dave Sheehan, and Todd Narbey.

The dance between Sheehan’s brilliantly colored and textured canvasses of toy soldiers surrounding boxers juxtaposed with the ambiguous imagery of writings and icons in Gista’s papers and Narbey’s underlying vision of war and peace provide us a platform to consider whether or not we will ever give peace a chance.

In addition to the opening receptions and conversations, there will be a poetry reading by Emily Calvo and Stella Vinitchi Radulescu on Thursday.

The exhibit runs through Thursday, December 31, 2009.
