New works by:
Saul Aguirre, drawings
Yarima Ariza, installation
Project Wall Space: Adriana Baltazar, installation
Saul Aguirre, born Mexico City and lives in Chicago is currently getting his BFA at the School of the Art Institute. He has shown his art for more than 15 years throughout Chicago, Mexico, Peru and recently has participated in Bridge Art Miami and Versionfest. His work is in several public and private collections throughout Chicago, Washington DC, Italy and Peru.
Yarima Ariza originally from Bogotá, Colombia and has studied at Columbia College Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has in the past collaborated on art projects involving hair with fiber artist Anne Wilson. Ariza currently lives in Miami.
Adriana Baltazar, born in southwest Chicago, has grown up to be a near hermit hidden away in an office by day to pay off art school debt. By night, squeezing in time to be an artist around homework as well. She completed her BFA at the School of the Art Institute in 2004 and is now pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching at Roosevelt University. She has shown in different places, big and small, near and far, but finds more pleasure in wandering through neglected nooks in the city and wilderness seeking sublime inspiration and escape in vacant lots and other plots of earth overridden with trees and foliage.

“Everyday Realities” Recent works by Chicago Painter Antonio Martinez
Opening Reception June 20th from 5:00pm-10:00pm
June 20 through August 1st 2009
"Autobiographical and narrative in style Antonio explores ideas and images
related to his experiences in the plumbing industry through these recent
paintings. Believing that no art is worthy of its name unless it contains
some element of beauty, he draws his inspiration from the tangle of human
relationships commonly rooted in the every day.
The utmost human activity is collecting. A collector often keeps track of his
life through the gathering of art pieces, even when the art and the collector
approach an idea from different view points. These decisions can then later
influence generations in which they can build upon for the future."
- Walter Fydryck, Chicago
