As March comes to a close Wicker Park and Bucktown galleries have a great selection of ongoing exhibitions worth going to see, many featuring phenomenal works of art by exceptional female artists, making it a great weekend to celebrate the last few days of National Women's History Month! This weekend also marks the beginning of thesis season as Master of Fine Arts candidates from around the Chicago area begin to mount exhibitions throughout the city, including here in the neighborhoods.
Northern Illinois University graduate students will mount their MFA Thesis Exhibition nitty-gritty at ARC Gallery with an opening reception Friday night from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Stop by to check out the results of these students' years of study and artistic development at NIU as they launch their post-grad careers.
Saturday is expected to be a rainy one, so stay dry by hopping art shows through the neighborhood. Sideshow Gallery in Bucktown will be hosting Folkgoblin Tintype Portrait Appointments from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, so be sure to have your likeness captured in the fashion of popular 19th century photography. Of special note for the evening is the opening of LVL3's Systems at Play, with a reception held from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. The show features new work from artists Katie Hammond (Halton), Matthias Merkel Hess, and William Hutnick. Veiled Landscapes at AdventureLand Works on Paper closes Saturday.
Continuing exhibitions in the neighborhood include Cornered, Fission Fusion, and Night Brings Day/Day Brings Night at Heaven Gallery; RED at Jackson Junge Gallery; Margot Bergman: Thank you for having me and Christina Forrer at Corbett vs. Dempsey; Cathy Hsiao & Kaveri Raina: To Hover at Roots & Culture; and Buck Naked: A Celebration of Form, Function, and Beauty at Bucktown Gallery.
