CHICAGO, Illinois – October XX, 2011 – Three Chicago artists ring in the holiday season on a surrealistic note with a show of mixed-media sculptures and figurative drawings. The sculptural works range in theme from mythical archetypes to wry commentary on the human condition to…flying whales. Recent life drawings, many of which were created at the Studio/Gallery’s Sunday workshop, pay homage to each artist’s grounding in the human form.
The artists will be on hand at the reception to share lively dialog on their inspiration and process.
Opening Reception (public invited) - Friday, December 9, 2011 from 5:00 to 9:00pm.

ABOUT TOM ROBINSON STUDIO/GALLERY:
Tom Robinson -- artist, curator, arts administrator, competition founder and judge, teacher, innovator -- has been a driving force in the Chicago art scene for over 30 years. “I never tire of the ways different artists see and capture the same scene”, says Robinson. “The real difference comes from how the artists direct their attention.”
