Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, IL is looking for works for art that engage with the common object. These are the objects we take for granted in our everyday life or know we could not live without. Art for this exhibit should take a moment to reconsider the common object. Artists may reexamine or alter the common object in their work. Submitted works could also provide a lens for the viewer to see the objects in a new perspective. Art should engage with these objects through concept, media, or both.
Juror | Carrie Ann Schumacher
Carrie is a multi-media artist living and working in Chicago. Several of her artistic endeavors play with “common” objects. Her dresses have utilized pages of romance novels to provide commentary on feminine myths. To address our modern perspectives on communication and the impact of how we connect through technology, she incorporates monsters to her imagery.
