Let's kick off the New Year with a BANG!!
Friday January 21st 7pm-10pm @ 4Art Inc Gallery
4Art is excited to announce that we will have two Amazing Guest Artists joining us this month:
Pen and Ink artist CJ Hungerman. Hailing from the steel town of Pittsburgh, PA; CJ has completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in graphic design from West Liberty State College and a BFA in painting from West Virgina University and from there attended Northern Illinois University and received his MFA majoring in Painting. CJ's work; The RANDOM ROBOT ATTACKS are mindless drones battling one another for no reason at all, endlessly.
The Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago (ILIAC) Student Photographic Society will exhibit works from twelve amazing photographers. The Students aspire to create a non-competitive atmosphere in which students can bridge connections to their professional future through involvement outside of the classroom. We strive to provide a forum for student discussion regarding the photography industry; jobs and internships; personal enrichment; school, regional, national and international issues. The goal of SPS ILIAC is to create a framework that provides a vehicle to incubate, collaborate, network, educate, enhance community, and support the development of future professionals. “Imagine” Dare to imagine a world full of endless possibilities. A world where our dreams become reality and anything is possible. In this series, these images will evoke fantasy, wonder, and the extraordinary. These are pictures made of invented concepts. By projecting contemporary ideas, aesthetics, and experiences through the lens of imagination and dreams, we aim to create a world of endless possibilities. We aim to blur the lines between fantasy and reality. Take a picture, take a journey, dream a little dream and see where it leads you.

"It has always been my mission to mentor and inspire and what better way than to put together an amazing group of artists from all walks of life and of varying experience. I am working on my eighth year of being in the gallery business; I am proud of all I have accomplished over the years and I look forward to what lies ahead. Our group isn't just a gallery of artists, it is a family of artists."
