Elmhurst Artists' Guild Hosts Chicago Women's Caucus for Art "TRANSMOGRIFICATION"
Nov 1, 2017 4:35 PM -
The Elmhurst Artists' Guild ("EAG") will host TRANSMOGRIFICATION, a themed exhibit featuring artwork by the Chicago Women's Caucus for Art, in the EAG Gallery at the Elmhurst Art Museum (EAM), 150 S. Cottage Hill Ave., Elmhurst, from Nov. 4, 2017 through Dec. 14, 2017. The public is invited to the free opening reception on Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00pm. TRANSMOGRIFICATION is as simple as transitioning from who we are by entering a cardboard box "the transmogrifier," as seen in the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon series. Or: it can be as complicated as altering ourselves, art, institutions, and beliefs into the fantastic, magical, or bizarre, as seen in the metamorphosis from a chrysalis into a butterfly, or in game arts. The artist's interpretation makes it personal: in its dramatic change of shape and form, appearance, emotion and mood. The medium, in most cases, transmogrifies: the line becomes energy, the circle becomes a sphere, the portrait becomes self. TRANSMOGRIFICATION is transformation with a powerful kick, a unique twist.
