PRESS RELEASE

 

Opening Friday, June 20th, 5:00-8:00pm

 

In the West Wing, CvsD proudly presents Magalie Guérin, re.  Born in Montréal, Guérin is an important young painter based in Chicago.  This exhibition presents six related paintings, intimate in scale, brilliant in form and color, all of which emanate from the same starting shape.  Extrapolations on a theme, they are pushed to a place where the departure point is so distant it has vanished.
