September 9 – October 7, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, September 9th | 6:30-8:30 pm
The Crossing represents art at the crossroads of cultures, spiritual revelation, life, and death. Two contemporary urban artists seeking nature; idiosyncratic yet aspiring to transcendence; speaking American with echoes of ancient languages. This exhibit contains the work of Judith Joseph and Luis De La Torre.
Judith Joseph’s work is permeated with Jewish folklore. She uses the style of medieval icons and manuscripts to spin tales inspired by family migration and spiritual wonderment.
Luis De La Torre’s work is filled with mystery and reverence. He is strongly rooted in Mexican culture while grounded in life in Chicago.
