Pulled Resources is the collaborative team of Thomas Sturgill and Dan DeZarn. Originally using the tagline, “…swiftly constructing large, labor intensive projects in relatively short periods of time and with fairly modest budgets.”  They will share with the audience two current projects, Frack Follow and Community Camaro that take a longer more complex look at the ideas of commodity, resource, environment, and material usage. Both are umbrella pieces that facilitate entirely new bodies of work and directions of investigation and action.

Michelle Grabner @ STUDIO Visits!

Rocket Gallery, Michelle Grabner

This week’s guest at STUDIO Visits is Chicago artist, writer, curator, Michelle Grabner. When she writes about her own work, here’s what she says,

“My work consists of identifying, indexing, and transposing patterns. I also build elemental compositions that are foundational to the language of abstraction. These works take the form of painting, drawings, paper weavings, photographs, and stitchery. I am most concerned with enacting rudimental organization, articulating notations and embracing repetition. I believe that these dedicated activities are progressive and principled.”

Since 1999 she has co-directed The Suburban, an artist project space in Oak Park, Illinois. Since 1999 The Suburban has hosted over 150 artist projects.  (thesuburban.org)

Join us at 9am this Wednesday in Nevins to learn more about Michelle Grabner!
