Group Show for 18th Street Pilsen Open Studios
October 20-December 20, 2006
Opening reception: Friday, October 20 from 5 - 10 p.m.

Prospectus Gallery
1210 W. 18th Street
Chicago, IL 60608
Tel: (312) 733-6132

From Centerstage: In a neighborhood of artist studios, Prospectus stands out as one of the few traditional galleries on the west side of Pilsen. Though there is nothing predictable about this space as it has featured emerging Mexican artists as well as established Chicago greats such as Roger Brown and Ed Paschke. Without a permanent collection, this space is all about the curated exhibition. Caveat: call ahead before a visit! Gallery hours vary.

For more information about 18th Street Pilsen Open Studios weekend October 21 & 22, please visit: http://www.subaltern.org/pilsen.html

Pilsen Artists Open Studios
S
at. and Sunday October 22-23, 2005
11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

The 3rd annual 18th St. Pilsen Open Studios will take place during Chicago Artists' Month this October. Over 30 spaces, 60+ artists from Carpenter to Western and from 16th St. to Cermak, will open their studios to the public. Maps will be available at all studios and there will be shuttle buses to take you from studio to studio.

Participating artists include well-known painters, muralists, sculpture, and installation artists and printmakers as well as emerging artists.

Pilsen has long been known for its murals and culture and dozens of artist's studios and homes are scattered throughout the Latin American and Mexican/Mexican-American neighborhood. This is the third years Pilsen Artists have opened their studios.

The weekend represents an opportunity to get new insight into art, the artist and a closer glimpse to the process of creating works of art. During the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd interested individuals will have an opportunity to share a unique experience with the artist(s) ask questions and discuss ideas with the artist. The space where art is created has a doorway to the past while the artists create in present time. To Gabriel Villa an oil painter and participating artist, “You get to see how an artist really works-you're in their environment. You get to see how an artist thinks.”

Post Card

Stories free us to visit new places as ordinary as a friend's kitchen, or the proverbial far away land. No matter the location, the search for the universal remains: the identifiable and the familiar in feeling or detail. Rebecca Villarreal's photographs and poems compose a geography of transitory moments and emotions. Her verse evokes an instant in time: a glimpse of an old pair of barber shop clippers, the banter at the local laundromat, or the celebration of a niece's quinceañera: “I was born in 1989 celebrate me cake/cowboy hats and shimmering dresses/shiny faces sweating.” Telling Stories” is a sensory ride through time and place, yet Villarreal's universal themes and engaging narrative bring the viewer home.

THE NEWLY DEAD SHOW: SOUTH MEETS NORTH

“The Newly Dead Show: South Meets North” takes off from the traditional Mexican Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead), a holiday embracing the inevitability of death. Each piece explores a unique aspect of death in contemporary times, including the death of past ideologies, forms, value systems, industries, and cultures. As the global network expands, some elements fall casualty, emulating the natural cycle of death and rebirth. This show calls attention to those elements newly dead, whose memory lingers simultaneously while new life, ideas, and cultures are born.

This group show brings together local artists from different parts of Chicago, and bridges the long-standing gap between the North and South Sides of the city. The pieces represent the diverse, multicultural fabric of Chicago, with each offering a personal perspective on issues that surface today, whether in Chicago or across the globe.

Please join us for the opening night of “The Newly Dead Show” at Las Manos Gallery in Andersonville. Son del Viento, an acoustic ensemble of young players that perform traditional folk songs from Mexico, will perform throughout.
