At times during our journey through life, varied emotional experiences cause us to shield our true feelings from the world. We go through ups and downs that become the storybook of our life. Our subjective reality may be completely different from everyone else's interpretation.
Through seasonal changes some of us struggle behind closed doors, but push through with a resilient smile. This exact sentiment is the focal point of a new exhibition opening Saturday March 11th. The show, taking place on level two inside the historic Water Tower Place, will feature five rising stars within the Chicago art market.
Participating artists include: Adonte Clark, Jason Farley, Jenny Vyas, Rawooh and Samantha DeCarlo. Separately, each artist has climbed the ranks within the Chicago art circuit since the start of their creative voyage years ago.
Adonte Clark, an advocate for mental health, recently gave a lecture at the M.C.A. on black creativity. Jason Farley, a fan of Clark's collection, progressed his artistic approach into a new body of work that was displayed and well received over the summer. Both artists are joined by Jenny Vyas, who just this past weekend completed a new mural for Soho House in honor of Women's History Month.
No stranger to public art, Rawooh joins the roster with plans to create a gallery mural to coincide within the exhibition's theme. Coming off his winter collaboration with Sofitel, we're eager to see what the artist's next creation will be.
For the final layer, Chicago artist Samantha DeCarlo adds a floral aesthetic, portraying seasonal change. All five talents join forces this weekend in an exhibition titled NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS. For more info visit the exhibits RSVP page.
