April’s 3rd Friday
4 Art’s 3rd Friday was, yet, another success. Young and old creatives travelled from all over the city to come to the center’s monthly 3rd Friday event and they seemed very impressed with the atmosphere of the gallery.
Speaking With The Artists
All the artists from the last show returned to show their work in April’s 3rd Friday. This time I knew more information about them and their work and we reconnected. Three artists really caught my attention at this show, John Smith, Joseph Kayne, and Zac Lowing. All of them dabbled photography, and very uniquely. Smith uses Photoshop to collage cosmic images, women, and machinery into beautiful, eye-catching pieces printed on vinyl. Kayne, captures beauty in graffiti, something many relate to delinquency. He goes into cities and finds these hidden gems before they are painted over. Lastly, Lowing uses his Samsung camera photo to capture vivid images of Chicago’s charm. I honestly could not believe it when he told me that his images were captured on a phone, simply amazing.
