Desaturate 2 is opening, Friday March 1st, 7-10pm, at LivingRoom Gallery (Chicago). Featuring screen prints by: Kim Ambriz, Derrick Buisch, Ethan D'Ercole, Dan Grzeca, John Hitchcock, Kathleen Judge, Damon Locks, Jay Ryan and Dan S. Wang. Nine artist presenting 5 screen prints in black & white.
In the summer of 2010, Damon Locks came up with a way to ensure that he would continue to produce art and asked several artists to promise to make five, one color (black) screen prints each. Accountability to other artists would ensure that each artist would have to figure out how to make it happen. The results of that challenge produced the first Desaturate show made up of work from seven people.
Participating artist Derrick Buisch spearheaded the continuation of the project, leading to this... Desaturate 2. The same rules applied but artists tend to work around rules to delightful effect. More artists this time around means more great art to love. Come check out the work and hang out with some awesome people.
