eggersmann Chicago hosted the 6th Annual River North Design District Gallery Walk on September 10, 2021. The theme of the night was “Surrender You Senses” and guests were invited to do just that!
If you missed the event, take a peek into the sights, tastes, touch, smell, and sound during the special night! The curators, salon lb (@salonlb._/), put together an amazing array of sculpture, ceramics, print, mixed media, tapestry, and etching.
Producing work that is sensuous, slightly frightening, and grotesquely humorous has become a means to engage discomfort and anger with situations that cannot be changed. Life’s frustrations and the human condition are embedded into her abstract sculptures, drawings, and installations through juxtaposition of delicate and aggressive material manipulation.

“Through poetics of the body, I investigate where bodies meet, cross, tangle, and where they pull away. I see the body in its flawed, innately intimate and personal nature as a metaphor for our shortcomings, limits, boundaries, and need for connection. Using the familiarity and tactility of cloth, I bring focused attention to our relationships and how our identities are constructed. Using traditional and non-traditional textile techniques, I create intimate declarations that question the body and its constraints- both physical and emotional.” – Mia Weiner (ochigallery.com)
“I work in a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, and collage. I am interested in the mass circulation of both printed and digital imagery. My work opens a discourse on vulnerability, perceived confidence, and the objectification of women. I strive to humanize celebrities and create empathy through the exploitation of their candid faltering. My practice is an invitation to consider the absurdity of pageantry, a celebration of societal idolatry, and a beacon for popular culture fanatics.” (salonlb.com)

Guests indulged on flavorful creations and our delicious signature cocktail, the Scarlet Gimlet.
The eggersmann team prepared an interactive coral sponge artwork for guests to add their own colors, texture and interpretation. The pieces were then raffled off in a social media hashtag challenge!
While guests explored our exhibit, we invited them to smell three very different scents of Zest, Smoked Woods, & Meadow.
A carefully designed playlist surrounded the studio space with a mix of upbeat tempos and contemporary hits.
