Saturday, October 13, 2012 - 7:00pm  Live Performance at 8:30pm

Through a variety of sculpture 3-D 12 offers a full range of color, texture, and style to its audience. Following a successful series of collaborations (2008-2012), artists Peter N. Gray, Alan Emerson Hicks, Mimi Peterson, and Eric Steele continue to explore the metaphysical process of recycling found materials and objects. Shelley Gilchrist, Ruyell Ho, Beth Kamhi, Jim MacRoberts, and Michelle Stone offer a softer interpretation of the theme in personal landscape. The works of 3-D 12 make a clear statement that sculpture can be a way of interfacing between language, lifestyle and emotion in order to join the socially conscious dialog between community and art as prompted by the 2012 Chicago Artist Month theme "Art, Block by Block". 
GALLERY HOURS: Monday - Friday 6-8pm; Saturday & Sunday 1-5pm; Saturday October 13th continuous 5-11pm, reception starting at 7pm & performance at 8:30pm.



Featured Artist - Liz Tuckwell

 Liz Tuckwell is a painter currently living in Chicago, Illinois.

Bio and Artist Statement 2012

Tuckwell, Liz
Trio of Green Part III
Oil on Panel
The main focus of her work is painting, which can most accurately be described as Abstract Expressionism.
“My work is a visual collage of colors. Marrying the color elements and the composition of the painting I am effectively able to translate my inner dialogues with an outside audience. I believe that art is an investigation into being, and that my art is an investigation into my own being. Through the examination of colors, forms, composition, and textures in oil painting I am able to deconstruct emotional concepts and present them visually. My work explores the fragility of the internal condition and strives to create a visual conversation and connection with my viewers.”
"Cocoon Revealing Itself"
