Victor, E.H. Steele:
Deus Ex Machina, a two-person exhibit, opens at the Charnel House this Friday, May 14, 6-9 PM. The Chicago-based artists are Megan Sterling and Stan Konowitz. Vicky Szilagyi writes that the exhibit "blends the ecclesiastic esoterica of divinity with the rigid, crusader-imposed decorum of religion. Megan Sterling's work deconstructs a classical approach to religious iconography, while Stan Konowitz's paintings question human nature from a dogmatic sense of morality." 3421 W. Fullerton, through June 6. Hours 12-5, Sat. and Sun., and by appointment. (773) 871-9046.
David and Goliath, S. Konowitz:
