Just want you to see a few examples Shahar Caren Weaver's work.
Shahar is showing her work in Hyde Park at the Catholic Theological Union at 5401 S. Cornell and you can park in their garage for free if you say you are going to see the exhibition that is on the 4th floor in this new and gorgeous building. Their hours are 9am to 4:30pm weekdays
The Veeck Gallery features art by Chicago area artists. Curator Janis Pozzi-Johnson curated the exhibition but her son died suddenly and she had to have some others install the show that also features fabulous Chicago artist Rhonda Wheatley, represented by Flatfile. Two other very interesting artists are also in the show.
Shahar and Rhonda are members of the collective of African American women artists called Sapphire and Crystals.
Yes, I did go to see the show and met a lovely artist in the exhibition from India that I did not know. She explained her painting process and how it was based on a ritual that she engaged in when she was a child. Reminded me of Barbara Koenen's work with herbs and seasonings because the artist made meditation pieces as a little girl using natural items.. I agree that we should try to support other artists. I also hope we can share information. I don't know about everything that goes on in the city.
