Introducing the IPaintMyMind Collection…
We are proud to announce a collaborative exhibition for our first show of 2013. We’ve invited IPaintMyMind to display their amazing poster collection to increase awareness of their project here in Chicago. Check the description below, written by the organization founder Evan LaRuffa…
IPaintMyMind’s mission is 501(c)3 nonprofit public arts media group and advocacy organization. IPMM believes in serving as a conduit for artists to make their art viable. We want to encourage and help grow a climate in which artists and artwork are valued and supported. IPMM’s role is to expose people to inspiring art, music, and culture, not to sell your eyeballs to the highest bidder – thus, the fact that there are no advertisements on our website, ever.
You can be sure that the reason we feature something on IPaintMyMind.org or at one of our events, is because we think it’s fantastic. In facilitating artist-direct sales, we hope to help the artists’ we love by connecting them with you, the public! If you enjoy the art or music you find on IPMM, go their website and buy something cool already! OK?! We also accept donations to cover our costs, only of course, if you appreciate what we do.
The collection we’ve curated for the Galerie F show represents a cross-section of the screen prints, artists and printers we love. It includes work by Daniel Danger, Sam Flores, Jermaine Rogers, Zach Johnsen, Tara McPherson, Dan Grzeca, Justin Santora, Vidhya Nagarajan, and Iain Macarthur. Artwork printed by Fugscreens, Steve Walters’ Screwball Press, and many more.
Come in for the opening reception on January 4th, 2013 – from 7pm to 10pm.
The exhibition will be on display till January 13th, stop by any time during our open hours to check it out!
