Oakton Exhibition Showcases Contemporary Chicago Artists

Enjoy a fascinating side-by-side look at works by contemporary Chicago artists Sandra Holubow and Judith Roth, each of whom brings a unique perspective to capturing the Windy City, starting Thursday, December 12, at Oakton’s Koehnline Museum of Art, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines.

Both artists will attend a public reception on opening night from 5 – 8 p.m. The free exhibition Unforgettable Places, Memorable People runs through Friday, January 24, 2014.

Holubow’s paintings and collages examine the collective aspects of community and the “ties that bind,” while Roth’s paintings and drawings center on the individual from head to toe. Yet, their art is comparable in the use of strong from, color, and asymmetry. Unforgettable Places, Memorable People highlights Holubow’s close study of urban environments and Roth’s expressionistic depiction of the human form.

This art show is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. The Koehnline Museum of Art is open 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday. The museum will be closed during Oakton’s Winter Break, Tuesday, December 24 – January 1, 2014.
