Summer Show @ Antena
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.
