Professor Castleman to Exhibit in Chicago
Sunday, 10 January 2010
Trinity’s Assistant Professor of Art and Design Dayton Castleman will exhibit at Jennifer Norback Fine Art, Inc. in Chicago through February 10.
Beginning January 8, Jennifer Norback Fine Art, Inc., 217 W. Huron, Chicago, is presenting the show “Out of Chicago.” The exhibit focuses on two emerging multidisciplinary Chicago artists working within a variety of media and styles in support of their individual conceptual visions. Unlike artists who work consistently in one media, all media possibilities are considered. In this exhibit, Castleman and Jeremy Tubbs display work investigating notions of displacement, escape, and departure.
“Apparently, one of my artworks has gone viral,” said Castleman. “It’s called Bread Bird, and I’ve been getting hundreds of website hits from all over the globe, literally every continent but Antarctica. The latest write-up went up on a Chicago web magazine today in their food section.” See it here: http://gapersblock.com/drivethru/2010/01/14/would_you_eat_bread_bird/
Castleman’s work has been exhibited at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Alogon Gallery, Chicago; and the University of Illinois Chicago’s Gallery 400.
