Artist Talk & Reception with Joey Garfield
We’re excited to work with artist Joey Garfield on an installation in the Drawing Room’s fine arts display case of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. Drifters will be available for viewing through May 30.
Drift : /drift/ • verb 1: to be carried slowly by a current of air or water 2: To flow or wander gradually. Synonym bob, float, meander. 3: Phrase used for understanding the general meaning and intention of a remark – Drifter: /drif-ter/ • noun 1: a derelict.
Garfield’s work honors both the wheel and wood. Growing up during the heyday of skateboard culture, he binds new, vintage, and handmade wheels and trucks with unique wood pieces from nature. All together, the wood, wheels and trucks create a new Minimalist form that is both grounded and uplifting.
Join us in the Drawing Room on Thursday, May 24 from 6-8pm for an opening reception and artist talk. Food and drinks available for purchase. Come check out the installation and hear from Garfield himself about the work
