“My art transforms what I see into a puzzle of form, pattern and color. I choose to work on copper because it adds a kind of vibrancy to the work and allows me to play with patinas that change the metal and create surprise for the viewer. I enjoy translating my vision into paintings that I hope express the joy, beauty and energy of the natural beauty that surrounds.” - Joan Holleb

Another peek into our upcoming exhibit on July 9th; “Woodlands and Cowscapes” from 5-8pm.

“My muses hide in the forests. I listen to the sounds of the wind in the branches, the birds’ songs, the squirrels’ warnings. The light in the trees endlessly changes and there is the vibration of life and communications between the living things that depend on each other for life and sustenance. The forests are not so peaceful but living, breathing, endlessly changing organisms with a charged electricity of life. My fascination with the woods will never end.” - Artist Joan Holleb

A closer look into our current exhibition of Cat Crotchett’s encaustic pieces. Cat’s pieces are characterized by Eastern and Western patterns painted in vibrant colors and textured surfaces which bring a sense of vibration and rhythm to all of her work.
All four pieces shown are 8 by 8 in.

From Left to right:
• Two Sides (Old Story)
• In the Distance

In her current exhibition at Addington Gallery, Cat L Crotchett really throws down her gauntlet as a painter to be reckoned with! Each painting alone is a technical tour de force, but taken together, this show is a huge statement about both herself and our shared time. Not only is Cat pushing the envelope of a specific encaustic technique she pretty much invented anyway, but she is pouring meaning and emotion into these layered panels until they nearly start to vibrate and sing on their own. Art talk hyperbole? You won't think so when you come and see the show in person. :-) It's up for nearly 2 months... that's plenty of time to figure out your travel plans.

Installation shots of our current exhibition: "Paula Blackwell: Out of the Blue" - Paula Blackwell is an American artist currently painting in a rural area near Portland Oregon. A practitioner of the ancient technique of encaustic (beeswax and pigment), Paula Blackwell has developed a strong reputation as a painter deftly able to evoke emotion through her deeply expressive, evocatively atmospheric works that exist in a balanced state between realism and process-oriented expressionism. Her recent and ongoing series of small, intimate, moody works exhibit a beautiful sense of depth, subtle shifts of light, and atmospheric translucent surfaces.

After living 20 years in a great collection, this beautiful little 5x5 Amanda Crandall painting was in need of some care. It had recently become damaged in a move. The painting is encaustic and oil. This little gem has now been restored to its original beauty, and will continue to bring happiness to that household for years to come. Addington Gallery offers conservation services for many types of painting. From simple cleaning to full-on aesthetic trauma, we can help. And if we can't, we'll immediately put you in touch with someone who can. We want your artwork to live a long and healthy life!

I'm leading the River North Gallery tour tomorrow, and we will be starting at Addington Gallery and Joanne Mattera's exhibition of encaustic paintings. This show is all about the intricacies of color relationships, and the way Mattera developed and "tunes up" each painting is a striking thing to behold. A viewer yesterday commented on the brail-like textures on each panel... how the horizontal lines are like lines of a language with meaning embedded in the textures. I was like , " whoa... yeah... and I'm using that!". So, join us tomorrow at 11am at Fabcakes 714 n Wells, and get the back-room scoop as we visit 3 galleries in the hood.Ri

There are a few weeks left to take a good long look at this beautiful exhibition of new work by Joanne Mattera. This is a striking show full of ambitious paintings. Small or large, they say important things about color, geometry, natural phenomenon, and engaging the space around us. I love to watch people look at the whole show in totality, then move in for an intimate viewing of each piece. Over and over they say things like, "It's a whole new painting when you get closer!" "A whole new aspect of the painting opens up when you move in!" etc. Stop by soon if you are in the area!

Exploring New Pathways to Selling Your Art

Artists - How has the current pandemic and, as Madison Avenue refers to them, "These Uncertain Times" affected how you MAKE, SELL, and THINK about art? There's a lot we need to talk about and reevaluate, and it's good to do these things in community in a creative way. That's why I'm inviting you to join me and art advisor Susan Blackman (of Art Advisory LTD) for what will surely be a memorable Sunday afternoon as we explore the Doug DeWitt outdoor earth-art compound, and participate in a SPECIAL end of Summer Seminar! We will be outdoors in a restored prairie installation - socially distanced, masked, feeling the breeze against our faces, smelling the native plants and flowers. We will be clearing out the cobwebs of concern, fear, frustration and anxiety, and trading them in for creativity, ingenuity, vision, and fresh air! I'm so excited to do this! But time is tight - it's coming up on Sunday the 13th near Mundeline, and you gotta reserve a space! 25 spots, 25 bucks! So, here's the scoop:

This is going to be an experience unlike any other - we will address the current art marketplace situation in an inspiring environment. This will be a unique, once only event. -- On Sunday, September 13 from 1-3 pm, Susan Blackman and Dan Addington will be conducting a unique Outdoor Seminar focusing on new strategies for marketing your art in these times. This Seminar will be outdoors, socially distanced, and safely conducted. We will be gathering for this seminar at artist Doug Dewitt’s 2.5 acre outdoor prairie installation and sculpture area. The Seminar will include a viewing of outdoor artworks, and a physical exploration of Dewitt’s ongoing earth-art project “This is Not a Garden”, a restored prairie area with a wandering path. Blackman and Addington will present a discussion of creative ways to address the showing and selling of art during shutdowns, the pandemic, and beyond. Our challenging times will be met with creativity, information, and innovation! This fresh air gathering symbolizes this creative and positive approach!
This seminar will be held in Mundelein IL. (30 miles from Rogers Park in Chicago). Individually packaged food and bottled water will be provided. We will wear masks, stay socially distant, and sanitize upon entering the grounds. Please bring your own chair. (lawn chair, camping chair, folding chair etc.) 25 participants, 25 dollars.
