The Crossing Exhibition


September 9 – October 7, 2016
Opening Reception:
Friday, September 9th | 6:30-8:30pm  

The Crossing represents art at the crossroads of cultures, spiritual revelation, life, and death.  Two contemporary urban artists seeking nature; idiosyncratic yet aspiring to transcendence; speaking American with echoes of ancient languages.  This exhibit contains the work of Luis De La Torre and Judith Joseph.  Luis De La Torre’s work is filled with mystery and reverence.  He is strongly rooted in Mexican culture while grounded in life in Chicago.  Judith Joseph’s work is permeated with Jewish folklore.  She uses the style of medieval icons and manuscripts to spin tales inspired by family migration and spiritual wonderment.
