Chicago Exhibitions. Humble Metaphors: July 26 – August 23, 2013 at the Bridgeport Art Center’s

Chicago Exhibitions. Humble Metaphors at Bridgeport Art Center

Nick Albertson, “Rubber Bands”

Everyday familiar objects such as rubber bands, paper boats, and women’s underclothes will be used to fashion metaphors about larger issues at the Bridgeport Art Center’s (1200 W. 35th St.) new exhibit opening July 26th; 6-10PM. The three multigenerational artists showing their uniquely metaphoric work are:

Young emerging artist, Nick Albertson, photographs ordinary objects (rubber bands, plastic straws, paper napkins, and other various everyday household items) by stripping their functions arranging into mystical patterns while repurposing them to create diverse visual experiences.

Originally from Puerto Rico, Jose Augustin Andreu uses the image of paper boats from his childhood to search for personal and cultural roots. Andreu has exhibited widely for several years and currently teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia Chicago.

Marci Rubin, a well known Chicago artist with a studio at Bridgeport Art Center, transforms nylons and discarded fabric into sculptures and wall assemblages to explore body image and feminist issues. Rubin has been exhibiting for several years including last year’s show at Northwestern’s Dittmar Gallery.

The show will continue through August 23, 2013.
