Having painted, printed, and pressed clay together for a number of years, the Studio 4 artists are inspired by their classes and camaraderie to present their first group show in a salon style exhibit. The art will include carefully rendered portraits in oil by Gloria Carrig, dynamic screenprints by Lisa Jenschke, intricate ceramics on a micro scale by writer/artist Bo Brown, and large-scale artwork by Ted Micheletti. Studio 4 unites an interesting group of artists from a variety of disciplines: Architect and artist Leon Sarantos, social activist Carolyn Pereira, and blogger and fabric artist Heather LaRiviere. Several Studio 4 artists have long roots in the Chicago art scene: Donna Terry was a high school student when she attended the first Hairy Who exhibit at the Art Center in the 1960s, while Jean Hester's brother was one of the founding members of AfriCOBRA. The show also includes work by teaching artist Randall Miller, who trained at the San Francisco Art Institute.

Layered Lusciousness

Art by renowned Chicago artist Darrell Roberts will be featured as a companion solo show. Roberts has served as mentor and teacher to many of the Studio 4 artists. His thickly textured, painted surfaces are inspired by the metropolis: the landscape, architecture, and construction of Chicago. Roberts has displayed his art extensively in both national and international exhibits. His recent residency and exhibitions in India provide him with a new metropolis and palette to inspire his work. He attended the School of The Art Institute of Chicago, and received a BFA and a Masters in Fine Art. Roberts is represented by McCormick Gallery in downtown Chicago. As Gallery Director, Thomas McCormick, says, "This guy just gets me with his lush brushwork — real cake-frosting surfaces in a size you can hold in the palm of your hands."

David Anthony Geary is a talented, teaching artist at Hyde Park Art Center. His art is also in a companion solo show. His lively and colorful art leaps off the canvas to engage the viewer. He has guided and influenced many Studio 4 artists. The community of Evanston and the greater Chicagoland area serve as a great source of inspiration to add to his palette. His work includes painting, printmaking, and photography. His visual training took place in New Orleans, LA at Xavier University.
