Opening: Out of House and Home

AllRise Gallery is holding an opening reception for its latest show, Out of House and Home. The show features five Chicago artists as well as work from artists in Costa Rica, the UK and Canada, all of which addresses private space and public exposure. Specifically, the theme is stated as, "how private space is compromised when the domestic is opened to the public and the personal is turned inside out." Local artists Don Guss, Joseph Mohan and Michael David Rose will show their photography and Duncan R. Anderson and Jared Sheldon will present their pieces in mixed media. Others will display paintings, films and more photography. Tonight's reception is from 7-10pm and includes a live performance from Rounded Binary. AllRise Gallery is located at 1542 N. Milwaukee Ave. Call 773-292-9255 for more information. The show runs through September 16.
