Sarah Jacquelyn Interiors featuring Bobbi Meier, Mia Wiener, and Emily Shopp of salonlb. at eggersmann
300 W. Hubbard St., 4th Floor
eggersmann and salonlb. invite you to let your mind wander. Explore Bobbi Meier’s sensuous, slightly frightening yet grotesquely humorous collection of ceramics and soft sculpture. Investigate where bodies meet, cross, and intertwine in Mia Weiner’s contemporary weavings, which respond to historical textiles. Discover the psychological relationship Emily Shopp creates with the natural environment. Together, these artists use process-based practices and material as an access point and mechanism to translate themes of nostalgia and identity. Join us as Sarah Jacquelyn Interiors brings the artwork to life and takes over your senses.
Centaur Interiors featuring JD Miller at Samuel Lynne Galleries
215 W. Huron St., Suite 1
Join Samuel Lynne Galleries Chicago and Centaur Interiors to experience innovative design and pursue the law of attraction with Reflectionism by artist JD Miller. Using a unique 3-dimensional oil technique based on sensorial experiences, Miller creates and conveys his sense of freedom, his joy in the miracle of creation, and the synchronicity of the universe. When creating, the artist calls upon the universal vibrations of light and sound to flow through him to allow for the molding of oil paints. Miller creates impactful, strong, enlivening canvases that take viewers on an existential journey.
