After a very successful launch last year, EDITION Chicago is back at Chicago Arts Coalition! Coinciding with EXPO Chicago, EDITION will take place all weekend, opening to the public this Friday at noon and closing on Sunday at 5pm.
This year, Chicago Arts Coalition (CAC) is celebrating 40 years of bringing together art and enterprise and promoting artistic leaders around Chicago. They founded EDITION in partnership with Chicago-based gallery owner Andrew Rafacz with a twofold aim: supporting emerging artists, and providing art enthusiasts with high quality artworks at a moderate price.
In addition to all the regular gallery exhibitions, 2012-2013 BOLT residents Sarah and Joseph Belknap have been invited to create work sold exclusively at EDITION. For the occasion, the Belknaps, both SAIC alumni will be creating “Fossil Fields”, a series of 25 silicone wall sculptures.
The entry to EDITION is free — yet another effort from CAC to cultivate artistic opportunities that deserves to be acknowledged — and a $10 donation that will help creating more innovative initiatives is suggested.
Galleries exhibiting at EDITION Chicago 2014 come from everywhere. Among others, you will find: Yautepec from Mexico City; Ochi Shop from Ketchum, Idaho; Segura Arts Studio from South Bend, Indiana; and a few local galleries too such as the Andrew Rafacz Gallery, THE MISSION, LVL3, the Vertical Gallery and of course CAC.
Have a peek at some of the works that will be on show this weekend.
