States of I: A Conversation | Opening Reception & Artist Talk

Please join us for the opening reception of States of I: A Conversation with featured visiting artists Mary Jones and Jolynn Reigeluth.

Jones and Reigeluth are artists that live and work in states of “I;” respectively, Indianola, Iowa and Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to living in states that start with the same letter, these printmakers have a penchant for building images from a central persona who is at best an unreliable narrator, caught and fraught in a landscape of self.

In their work, both artists celebrate the absurdity of being human by bringing to light those untold internal monologues. These autobiographical works by Jones and Reigeluth exemplify their shared interests in narrative imagery, as well as a love for the graphic legacy and energy coming out of Chicago, Illinois. For this exhibition, Jones and Reigeluth will contribute two bodies of work that culminate in a conversation with a set of two prints – one from each artist – that correspond in size and title.

States of I: A Conversation will be on view through August 11, 2018 at The Annex at Spudnik Press, 1821 W. Hubbard Street, Suite 302, Chicago, IL 60622.

States of I: A Conversation will kick-off with a Artist Talk at 6:15 p.m. on June 15th, followed by the Opening Reception. The exhibition runs through August 11, 2018. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5:00 p.m., or by appointment. This exhibition was selected by the Spudnik Press Member Exhibitions Committee.
