one of the Deb Sokolow “scraps” available at SCRAP HEAP II at Tusk tomorrow
This Saturday, June 7, events all over the city provide opportunities to see (and maybe score) artworks by some of Chicago’s best-loved, rapidly ascending and generous contemporary artists.
Sofia Leiby has organized the second iteration of SCRAP HEAP in which she culls “scraps,” sketches and small artworks by artists that are for sale for $20 or less. The full amount of proceeds go directly to each artist, making this an experimental marketplace that invites appreciation and consideration of the fragments and preliminary gestures found in artists’ studios. Artists include Lauren Anderson, Leslie Baum, Edmund Chia, Ryan Travis Christian, Chelsea Culp+Ben Foch, Dan Devening, Ron Ewert, Andrew Falkowski, Aron Gent, Magalie Guerin, Steven Husby, Josh Ippel, Emre Kocagil, Chad Kouri, Sofia Leiby, Sarah Anne Lobb, Aya Nakamura, Heidi Norton, Kayla Parker, Josh Reames, Tyson Reeder, Noah Rorem, Talia Shulze, Deb Sokolow, Cody Tumblin, Molly Welsh and more. SCRAP HEAP II is hosted by Tusk, 3205 West Armitage, Saturday June 7, from 11am–5 pm. Read the rest of this entry »
