A Hot Night in Bridgeport

I spent a hot, muggy night visiting some art venues in Bridgeport. My first stop was the Throes of Progress show at the Bridgeport Art Center, which features work by my friend Kathy Weaver.



The show addresses difficult subject matter, including various accidents and tragedies. Many of the artists explore the ways in which technology endangers or fails us. The very notion of human progress is questioned in the face of human frailty and human error. The show continues through August 7th. See it if you can.

The Throes of Progress artists talked about their work in a panel discussion.

I love this piece by Kathy Weaver, Artifacts of War.




I also enjoyed seeing the Chicago's Best Abstract Muralists show at The Frame Shop. Lively and colorful work by several artists is featured in the gallery of this local framing shop.
