New show coming up at Koehnline Museum of Art in DesPlaines

"Unforgettable Places, Memorable People"

December 12, 2013 – January 24, 2014
A fascinating side-by-side look at works by contemporary Chicago artists Sandra Holubow and Judith Roth, each of whom brings a unique perspective to capturing the city. Roth’s paintings and drawings focus on the individual from head to toe, while Holubow’s paintings and collages examine the collective aspects of community and “the ties that bind.” Yet, their art is similar in its use of strong form, color, and asymmetry. "Unforgettable Places, Memorable People" highlights Roth’s expressionistic depiction of the human form and Holubow’s close study of urban environments.

Public Reception: Thursday, December 12, 5 - 8 p.m.
