Second Fridays – Antonyms

14 Oct 2022 - 4 Nov 2022


October 14 – November 4, 2022
Sculptures by Alfonso “Piloto” Nieves Ruiz

Paintings by John Gutierrez
Music by Dave Barsotti

Second Friday Reception October 14, 2022 | 6-8pm

The Beverly Art Center kicks off its fall Second Friday season with three incredible Chicago Artists. In the Main Gallery John Gutierrez and Piloto Ruiz could not be any different.   John’s paintings seem to hypnotize you with their graceful flowing layers of abstract color and line while Piloto’s sculptures grab you and shake you up. This exhibition is designed to play with this dynamic contradiction. Helping the viewer negotiate this harmony and chaos will be Dave Barsotti, a sculptor and musician. He will create haunting soundscapes with instruments of his own invention.
Visitors are encouraged to join the artists for a reception on October 14, from 6-8 pm where they can meet new friends, grab a cocktail and stroll the halls to see a wide variety of work by these and other local artists.
Return next month for Second Friday to see Responding to Rhythms, a new juried exhibition by members of Chicago Sculpture International. For this exhibition sculptors were challenged with creating work on the theme Responding to Rhythms. Music will be provided by sculptor and musician Joe Rauen.
December’s Second Friday will bring a magical immersive video art installation Fireflies in Winter by Edyta Stepien. The building will be filled with the sound of Lilianna Zofia Wośko on the cello accompanied by electronic beats. Her newly released music video and album will also be on display.
