02 Mar Chicago Artists Interpret Shakespeare: As They Like It
Drawing of Shakespeare by Anne Farley Gaines
Chicago Artists Interpret Shakespeare presents two back-to-back art exhibits at Addington Gallery, curated by Anne Farley Gaines, Robert Kameczura, and Maureen Warren. The show has previously been exhibited in several galleries and public places in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Ohio. It is one of many arts presentations in Chicago this year commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
Wikipedia says ekphrasis is a “device in which one medium of art tries to relate to another medium by defining and describing its essence and form, and in doing so, relate more directly to the audience, through its illuminative liveliness.”
I am looking forward to seeing Shakespeare “illuminated” by these pieces of visual art.
Artists included in Exhibition Series #1 include: Jose Agustin Andreu, Carol Brookes, Keith Brownlee, Corinna Button, Jonathan Franklin, Anne Farley Gaines, Alan Johnson, Robert Kameczura, Kim Laurel, Sandra Leonard, Renee McGinnis, Joyce Owens, Mary Porterfield, Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, Maureen Warren, Kathy Weaver, Carla Winterbottom, and Jill Zylke.
