RNDD 6th Annual Gallery Walk

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.

sight

Bobbi Meier, exhibited sculpture

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.

Mia Weiner, exhibited textiles

“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)

Emily Shopp, exhibited etching & print

“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)
