Artists' Atlas: Chicago Artists Map Their Journeys, in Multi-Medium Show in the Loop

Artists’ Atlas: Mapping Their Journey
State Street Gallery
401 S. State Street, Chicago
Sept. 24 – Dec. 20, 201
Chicago Artists Map Their Journeys, in Multi-Medium Show in the Loop
Great Cities of Europe - Jason Messinger
Artists’ Atlas: Mapping Their Journey is a group art show at the State Street Gallery. Nine Chicago artists explore and map location, memory, and identity in this multi-medium art show. The local artists include Kass Copeland, Deanna Krueger, Alan Emerson Hicks, Jason Messinger, Matt Nichols, Emily Rapport, Jordan Scott, Marya Veeck and Joey Wozniak.
Rivulet - Deanna Krueger
The artists’ unique perspectives and unconventional approaches to materials are reflected in a variety of both two and three dimensional forms. The show includes paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, tile murals, assemblage constructions, and installations.
Alignment - Jordan Scott
The artists utilize materials as varied as paint, ink, canvas, paper, wood, ceramic, photographs, prints, text, found objects, plastic packaging, historical images, star charts, recycled medical diagnostic film, and cancelled postage stamps. 
Temporary Insanity - Marya Veeck
By mapping places, charting memories, and tracing the elements of identity, the nine artists present a visual atlas of our interior worlds. 
Galileo - Kass Copeland
Kass Copeland’s box assemblages have a keen sense of personal intimacy and memory-laden nostalgia built into their subtle forms and dream-like narratives. 
Abyss - Deanna Krueger
Deanna Krueger’s photographic close-ups of abstract paint strokes evoke aerial and satellite landscapes. Her textile-like wall-hanging utilizes recycled X-ray and MRI film to create an external landscape made from internal views.
Adam and Eve and Apple - Alan Emerson Hicks
Alan Emerson Hicks constructs and weaves plastic remnants and recycled packaging into exuberant and richly detailed sculptures that speak to personal identity. The artist will construct a new sculpture over time in the front window.
Blueprint - Jason Messinger
Jason Messinger’s ceramic and porcelain tile murals emphasize the beauty and humor of maps, blueprints, postcards, and directions. 
R2Detour - Matt Nichols
Matt Nichols’ patterned collage paintings evoke multi-layered memories, and narrate life as complex and beautiful. 
Construction Site - Emily Rapport
Emily Rapport presents realistic but atmospheric paintings of urban buildings in transitional states, and exposes the potent symbolism of homes in our psyche. 
Grand Traverse / Detail - Jordan Scott
Jordan Scott uses cancelled postage stamps to create elaborate maps and forms, utilizing raw materials that have already traveled the globe. 

Natural Selection - Marya Veeck
Marya Veeck illuminates her own personal story in her richly detailed still-life paintings, and reflects the art practices of other artists in a new series of intimate portraits of their art studios. 
Onion Nebula - Joey Woznaik
Joey Wozniak’s figurative tableau paintings merge text with stylized figures from art and history to illustrate a personal search for an artist’s identity. His humorous urban landscapes depict the world as a stage.
Born Under Punches - Matt Nichols
‘Artists’ Atlas: Mapping Their Journey’ exhibits at the State Street Gallery, prominently located at the corner of Van Buren and State Street, at 401 South State Street, Chicago.

A dedication ceremony was held on August 21 for the new station and station-renovations for the Illinois Medical District stop on the Chicago Transit Authority Blue Line. Included were comments by CTA President Dorval Carter Jr and by Mayor Rahm Emanuel that introduced artist Jason Messinger and his custom commission of five hand-carved black porcelain tile murals, designed for the three station entrance houses of the IMD train stop. The Ogden main entrance houses two murals and the Paulina location one. The Damen entrance will showcase two additional murals, to be installed later this month. The artist was awarded the $100,000 commission after a national search, as part of the $23 million renovation and remodel project for the train stop.
