“Follow Me on Friday” this Friday, February 7th, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. as we take in some stunning visual art in the Mezz Gallery, located on the mezzanine level of one of Rogers Park’s most popular music venues, the Mayne Stage, 1328 W. Morse.
Mezz Gallery exhibits the art work of Rogers Park artists and celebrates the diversity of our neighborhood by capturing the community’s point of view on social, ecological, political, and creative matters in a two-dimensional format. All exhibits are open to the public.
The Mezz Gallery’s very own Joseph Deschene will be displaying his artwork at this Friday’s Follow Me on Friday. His show is entitled “The Statistical Nature of Prime,” and includes both two and three-dimensional works. The exhibit explores the relationships between American folk art and primal cultures, as well as between the creative and utilitarian functions of objects, while using mathematics as a universal language – with each work addressing a different aspect of “prime.”
Take in Joe’s amazing exhibit while enjoying some delicious appetizers and a complimentary beer, wine or soda, courtesy of the Act One Pub.
Any artist who lives or works in Rogers Park is eligible to submit their work for exhibition at theMezz Gallery. Exhibits consist of either the work of a solo artist, a group show or a theme-inspired show. Exhibits rotate monthly and entries are juried and curated by Mezz Gallery. For questions, contact Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
