NEW AMERICAN PAINTINGS AT THE ELMHURST ART MUSEUM
For the second year in a row, the Elmhurst Art Museum is presenting an exhibition that features work from all of the artists featured in the most recent Midwest Issue of New American Paintings.
This year’s publication and exhibition was thoughtfully curated by Kelly Schindler, associate curator at the St. Louis Contemporary Art Museum. The artists participating in this year’s NAP broadly span the spectrum of varying themes in contemporary painting, including figural representation, material studies, optical abstraction and spatial depictions, while continually redefining the limits of formal categorization.
Participating artists include Peter Barrickman, Leslie Baum, Laura Bidwa, William Blake, Michelle Bolinger, Jeff Broekhoven, Robert Burnier, James Collins, Shannon Estlund, Greg Fadell, Robert Gniewek, Magalie Guerin, Diana Guerrero-Maciá, Samantha Haring, Jamey Hart, Gina Hunt, Alex Jackson, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Misha Kligman, Alicia LaChance, Michael Milano, Armin Mühsam, Andrea Myers, Paul Nudd, Boris Ostrerov, Josh Reames, David Rettker, Edo Rosenblith, Eric Ruschman, Deb Sokolow, Casey Jex Smith, Debra Smith, Scott Stack, Kevin Stuart, Keith Tolch, Sara Willadsen, Sarah Williams, Xi Zhang and Lauren Zoll.
We want to thank all participating artists and everyone at the Elmhurst, including the incredible Staci Boris, who has championed the show.
So honoured to have sold a piece of work in last night’s #takehomeanude @sothebys benefiting the @nyacademyofart .
I got zero pictures of myself or the event in action 🙈 but it was spectacular as always! The Academy proved once again why it’s the best graduate school in the world!
I’m a very open person, if people feel happy, I feel happy, if people feel sad and angry, I lose all my energy, and feel sick. •••
That was my usual feeling before I discovered healing stones, started making jewelry and wear it myself because I can’t tell something that I haven’t experienced myself✅
Couple days ago I attended an event without wearing any Jewelry in a very long time. When I walked out, I felt so bad 😨and I couldn’t understand the reason. •••
After a while I realized that it was my usual feeling in the past before🤦♀️ I started wearing protective stones.
It’s very interesting how we tend to forget things that used to happen to us. Once we get used to something good, we want better and better, without realizing and be thankful for what we have now. ❤️
Agate is a confidence and strength stone 💪It uplifts and energize you in times when needed 👍
