Join us to view the work of the artists of The Art House community, curated as a large scale group exhibit. The show marks the close of the 4th year of The Art House and represents the diversity and individuality of the work coming out of the studio during this important time in its evolution as a professional artist's studio, gallery and school.
The Art House presents: An Education, an exhibition featuring a selection of works created by visual artist Sarah Rieser, in recognition of her 2013 completion of the Certificate in Fine Arts from The Art House . Curated by Rebecca George, the one-night-only opening is Friday, July 15th, 2016 from 6pm to 9pm at Arts on Elston Gallery in Avondale.
Sarah Rieser is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Born and raised thirty miles southwest of the city, her art practice is a thematic exploration of consumption-related suburban dystopia. Rieser’s work conveys elements of humor, irony, and ennui by using traditional, labor-intensive processes to transform disposable, mass-produced materials. She creates mixed media art that confronts the wastage of planned obsolescence and the fetishization of religious imagery while introducing questions of taste, feminine labor, and prescriptive reliance on the nondurable.
Featuring new work by Alena Ahrens, Christine Connor, Mary Dorrell, Ken Hogrefe and Lisa Sulkin

DESCRIPTION: Artists’ Books are a unique artform and a challenging medium to display in traditional art shows. They are often under glass, and the viewer has access to only the spread selected by the show installers, or the cover. This one month long Book Arts Library exhibit will allow cover to cover access to handmade books. Also on display will be the work of printers, painters, photographers and others who use words or text as the basis of their artwork.
MEDIA: This exhibit is primarily for handmade book and paper artists who are willing to have their work handled (in a supervised setting), so that they can show the book as a whole. We are seeking artist books, book sculptures or objects, broadsides, sculptural books, zines, graphic novels and comics.
To submit work: Please send a high res photo of your work to email@example.com, with a description of the work as you would like it to appear in the catalogue.
QUESTIONS: Contact Eileen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773.791.1236. E-mail much preferred.
This exhibit will be held at ARTS ON ELSTON gallery, 3446 N Albany Ave, Chicago.
