Resilient, Aurora Art Center, 2022
Exhibition Dates: September 2- October 8, 2022
The Aurora Public Art Commission will host Resilient, an exhibit showcasing the works of three acclaimed Chicago-based artists: Monica Rezman, Jean Alexander Frater and Bobbi Meier.
The public is invited to attend two free events during which they can meet the artists. An opening reception will be held September 2nd, 6-9pm, during Aurora Downtown’s First Friday event. An artist panel discussion will be held Saturday, September 24th, 2-4pm. A collectible exhibit catalogue will be published following the closing of the exhibit."
Curator Jenn Byrne shares, “For each of these artists, decades of commitment to their craft, both informed by and challenged by the multiple roles women play, has led to the development of uniquely sophisticated yet relatable approaches to story-telling through textiles. Rezman, Meier, and Alexander Frater move without boundaries between two- and three-dimensional fields; I see this innovation, shared amongst all three artists, as a result of the laid-back wisdom and sense of humor one earns over years of experience releasing expectations and adapting to life’s constant changes.”
