In November Ethan asked participants to contribute 3 pieces to a show about outside space, how it’s used.  “I knew the opening would fall in late winter; however, I didn’t have any clue how oppressive and relentless the 2014 Chicago winter would be.  Perfect.  All this time cooped up indoors will make art about outside space more wonderful, more therapeutic.”  Ethan could not have assemble a better group of artists who balance color humor and joy de vivre in a better way. …

Current Gallery Show: Living in Chicago – Dmitry Samarov – Friday January 17th-March 1, 2014

Living in Chicago – Dmitry Samarov

 

mess

“I’ve lived in Chicago for over 20 years. For all that time I’ve drawn and painted inside and outside the places I’ve lived. Oil paintings, watercolors, charcoals and inks document what I see out windows and what I choose to bring home. I never start any of these pictures with any particular meaning in mind but the better ones are able to talk back to the viewer. They remind people of moments from their own experience.…

Collectors and scavengers at their core, the artists gathered source materials as they explored 80-acres of ridge, valley and woods in Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin located in the ‘Driftless Region’ of the Midwest.  Following a process of gathering and re-mixing natural, human-made and digital sources, they form a personal, composite perspective of this region.…

Eve Fineman on her 2012 LivingRoom Exhibit: Objects In Space

Recently Eve Fineman wrote this lovely piece about her show at LivingRoom last year. It was a very well received show and we are delighted to have played a part!

“Rather than displaying a series of independent pieces on pedestals, I was curious to see what a grouping of furniture and objects, all designed in Chicago, would look like together in one functional, unified space.”

Gallery Opening: Pitch Black
 The work of Damon Locks and Alix Lambert
Friday October 5th 7-10pm

 
Pitch Black presents the work of Damon Locks and Alix Lambert. Both artists exhibit pieces that explore the unseen side of the human condition and the challenges we face in confronting and exploring those places.

The screen prints on display by Damon Locks in the Pitch Black exhibit explore another tributary of his expression. Gone is the populous that inhabit his artistic terrain. The urban landscapes of previous pieces are deemed irrelevant in this new set of pieces.…

Gallery Opening: Friday March 9th from 6-9pm

Please join us here at LivingRoom for this special show featuring two amazing local artists, Jesse Harrod and Elijah Burgher.

 

Our bodies accelerate quickly into extremes of pleasure and pain, often it is only the best of lovers, of landscapes, or of experiences that can tame, tease, or guide our entry into either realm. What pleasure and pain look like or feel like, though, is deeply unclear, is abstract, is insidious, is different for everyone.…

Past Perfect – Jamie Hayes
Gallery Opening: Friday January 2oth 6-9pm

We here at LivingRoom could not be more delighted than to be opening the year with this one of a kind show from the multi-talented artist Jamie Hayes.

In the spring of 2009, Jamie contacted a group of friends and colleagues to participate in a collaborative project, called Past Perfect, wherein participants would work with her to design a dream garment: items they’d loved and lost or items they’d always wanted.…
