Join us in celebrating our fourth season of Option, a weekly series of improvised music curated by Ken Vandermark, Tim Daisy, and Andrew Clinkman, and hosted by ESS. Keep Your Options Open II will feature Nate Wooley’s exciting new ensemble from NYC, knknighgh, and a premiere of a new work entitled, “310 Lines” by Amanda DeBoer Bartlett (voice) with Katie Young (bassoon and electronics) and Jenna Lyle (voice and movement). We’ll keep the party going after with John Corbett spinning records along with special guest DJs Peter Margasak and Angel Bat Dawid. We'll also have Sketchbook Brewing serving their finest seasonal brews for the evening. As a token of our appreciation for all of our Option supporters, we will be releasing a special limited edition CD featuring artists from the 2017 Option season. Funds raised from this evening will go directly back into the series, supporting artist fees and travel in 2018.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH

"Sam Cooke, inventor and true King of Soul, recorded Mr. Soul in the same year as Night Beat, and seems to be its more adult counterpart, with soulful ballads taking up most of the album. A laid back tempo and rich arrangements lay the foundation over which Sam's somewhat melancholy voice floats, creating an uplifting spirit that can mend anyone's broken heart...Had Sam Cooke lived longer, we might have had more music of this rare quality. As it stands, we must make do with the treasures he left behind." ~ musiconvinyl.com

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD

This month's theme for Concurrence, collaborative art series is Blue. Our featured artists will create a collection of work based of the color blue and determine their own artistic interpretations! 

Featured artists in March:
 

Anna Drew

A.R. Drew is a Mixed Media Contemporary artist. Anna Ryan Drew action paints many of her abstract pieces, as well as drawing from the political environment to evoke her viewer in a dialog about social justice and civil rights. Materials range from vintage Louisvitton handbags to stretched canvas.

Léona “Lisha” Perine

Léona has been creating art and short comics, and writing short stories since their youth with themes of horror at its heart. They took a new direction and began creating content for YouTube and their blog, as well as events under the name Lishamisha22 since 2009. While being a content creator online, they used these platforms to showcase the various components they customized or designed, from their nails to headpieces. Their favorite mediums are watercolour, pastels, denim, and leather. 

Robin Malpass

Robin Malpass is a 2-D painter who uses credit cards to create works on canvas using natural composites, glass and acrylic paints. Named one of Chicago's ten artists to watch by Chicago Social, Robin's work mostly recently appeared at Woman Made Gallery's 20th Anniversary Show. Robin works from her studio located in the Fine Arts Building.

Chris Trejo

Chris Trejo is best known for his abstract paintings produced on different materials, like wood for example, and done in many different techniques. Trejo’s work is a result of his (artistic) lifelong experimentation with many styles, techniques and even media. He is focused on tactile nature of all things. Each common object, of many that perpetually surround us, owns a unique tactile story that we usually ignore while focusing on the visual or audio experience. As he says: We live in texture, always; in sight, sound, color, and feeling.

COMING IN MARCH!!
