Beginning in the New Year, the first floor galleries of the Chicago Cultural Center will showcase Oak Park artist Claire Ashley, whose unconventional work strains the boundaries between not only painting and sculpture, but between static and mobile. Playfully entitled, “frizzflopsqueezepop," the exhibition features vibrantly colored works painted on tarpaulin: some hang on the wall, others occupy space on the floor, while still more can be inhabited by humans who will place the objects in motion in two scheduled performances. The artist's reception is January 11 and the exhibit runs from January 12–March 31, 2013.
