Undercurrents: Works by Michelle Stone & Susan Smith Trees



 Art Center Highland Park (TACHP) exhibits work that breaks down the boundaries of inside and outside. As space can be defined by a physical separation, without or beyond an enclosure, artists here redefine the confines of what constitutes inside and outside. A physical wall, a border, or skin are forms that outline and delineate between inside and outside, acting as protection. Our skin protects us from germs, our homes protect us from weather.  However, when we think metaphysically or spiritually, how do we describe those separations? In this compilation of artists, juried by Michelle Stone & Susan Smith Trees, the work represents the ability to break down barriers, revealing what is both inside and outside, blurring the delineations between them.

Main Gallery: Streaming Reflections

TACHP is proud to exhibit Bert Leveille’s “Streaming Reflections” in the Main Gallery. A contemporary Chicago area artist with a Harvard, Starline studio, she creates art and art installations exploring consciousness. Collaborations include Shawn Coyle who, inspired by Leveille’s imaginative large scale art and 15 foot tunnel, choreographed the dance “Tunnel”. A collaboration with Angela Swan and Cellmod on Sept 11, 2015 evolved into a moving tribute to 911. Leveille’s mediums include video, animation, LED colored changing lighting, materials and canvas, and acrylic paint. Each installation offers a unique experience for the artist and the art viewer.

Artist Talk with Judy Norris: March 15, 2019, 5:00pm

In the main gallery: A Look Within: Judy Norris & Suzette Bross

TACHP exhibits two Chicago artists who explore the representation of self and others through art. Judy Norris has been painting for fifty years, with a prolific collection of works often reflecting her own life.  As a kind of visual diary, there is a complexity between herself and viewer as her self portraits do not look us in the eye, but rather she turns her back to us, leading us further into her private world. By Contrast, Suzette Bross’ For the Glass, transforms the traditional portrait by turning a digital flatbed scanner into a contemporary version of the photographic plate. “Meditating on the tradition of portraiture, Bross mimics the sharp details and imperfections in the surfaces of 19th-century studio portraits. Her relationship with her subjects becomes a performative act of photographing.” By pushing technology into the past, Bross creates an intimacy with her subjects, including herself through her own self portrait.  Together, their work exemplifies a commonality of self expression seen through very different lenses.

Lecture Gallery: Beyond the Selfie  

The Art Center Highland Park (TACHP) presents a juried exhibition of work that reaches beyond the traditional concept of a self-portrait. With over 75 entries, our guest jurors, Judy Norris and Suzette Bross, chose art that reflects interpretations of the self-portrait theme . In today’s obsession with “Selfies,” we found that often artists push the boundaries of self-expression and  representation.  

Congratulations Artists: Cosima Aryee, Jooeun Bae, Hayley Bean, Ina Beierle, Jody Berns, Claire Brassell, Kandi Champagne Cook, Samuel Fisch, Lauren Geenen, Patricia RAIN Gianneschi, Candi Hall, David Hauptschein, Steve Juras, Mary Krebs Smyth, Al Krueger, David Kutz, Anne Leuck, Terry Luc, Ara Lucia, Julie Ludwick, Andrew Maxedon, Janet McNulty, Te Moore, Karena Nelson, Anna Redwine, Tamzin J. Richie, Tara Riley, Anne Rowell, Karmel Sabri, Rana Sadek, Anita Seltzer, Heather Sepanik, Ali Seradge, Erin Smego, Karen Smith, Mark Stafford, Kerra Taylor, Gale Trausch, Nikki Vismara, Ashley Young

Guest Jurors:Judy Norris (image left)  & Suzette Bross (image right)
Judy Norris is a Chicago based artist explores the self, identity, and relationships to family. She is inspired by personal tales, the environment, and cultures around the world. Her work embodies much from her own life, including a series and book dealing with the sense of grief from the loss of her son. Her self portraits defy the usual expectations of defining the self with a sense of humor and realism tied together.

Suzette Bross is a photographer living and working in Chicago, Illinois. Her work is in the permanent collections of The Art Institute of Chicago, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, the New Britain Museum of American Art, Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art and more. With an MFA from the Institute of Design at IIT, Bross has taught at Columbia College Chicago, the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and the Northwestern University Medical School. Her work has been exhibited internationally and across the United States. Her series, For the Glass, was featured in solo exhibitions at the Chicago Artists Coalition and Lehman Arts Center in North Andover, MA, Geary Contemporary booth at EXPO Chicago 2016, and as the first exhibition in the Chicago Google Artist Initiative. The series pushes the boundaries of portraiture.

East Gallery- Express Your Selfie @ TAC

TACHP facilitates an interactive self-portrait activity, initiated by Director of Education, Mindy Tiberi. Visitors to the gallery will have the opportunity to create their own self-portrait to add to our walls.   

Cortesi Gallery-PhotoVoice

TACHP teams with the Highland Park Police Department and Edgewood Middle School, inspired by the International Program, Photovoice, to combine photography with social change and self-portraiture.  The HP police has asked students at Edgewood to create a photograph to reveal what a healthy life means to them. “It’s all about choices. Students are faced with making choices every day. The most important choices they are faced with often have an impact on their health and well-being.”

Oddly Enough

August 4-26, 2017
Opening: Sunday, August 6, 2017 2:00-4:30 p.m.

Artists Susan Emmerson, Elyse Martin, and Michele Thrane all use materials in quirky ways.  Emmerson uses Tyvek, draws on it, slices it with a scalpel, then heats and contorts it into three dimensional objects. Her work usually recalls microorganisms and human anatomy.  Martin makes ethereal objects out of paint and mediums. She allows for the happenstance while constantly making choices on what and what not to keep.  Thrane works in encaustic using layered monotypes that often reflect her interest in science. Some of her work is cut and “sewn” together with staples creating paper sculpture.

Perhaps because these three artists are kindred spirits, their work fits together.

“Art is inevitably a reflection of ones own reality…..that of the maker as well as the viewer. I am always seeking a path between the two in the direction of a distant dream.” Jonathan Plotkin

Jill Takiff Hirsh is a lifelong artist. Jill’s wonderful parents nurtured her interest when they enrolled her at age 8 in summer art camp at The Art Center – Highland Park, then called Suburban Fine Arts Center.  Jill’s love of art progressed and she earned a BS in Art at The University of Wisconsin. Next, she studied Art Therapy and earned an MA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Jill tried several careers before finding the one she likes the most-Chairman of the Board of First Bank of Highland Park. 
Creating art continues to be a source of joy. Jill often says, “Art is my meditation, my happy place,” to anyone  listening. Current works include watercolor painted whimsical characters and monotype prints. 
Jill’s awesome family teaches her through their kindness to always give to others. In the spirit of philanthropy, 50% of profits from sales of these art works will be donated to The Ark- Chicago, where Jill volunteers her time.
