It’s finally warm and sunny out and we’ve been sprucing up the backyard in preparation for our exciting summer programming. Our calendar for the next few months is filling up quickly with exhibitions and studio visits (and maybe barbecues). Over the summer we will be having two solo shows, one duo show and one group show. Solo artists include Noah Furman in June and Lynnette Miranda in July. Jason Judd and Juan Fernandez will be having a show together in August, and six weavers from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s fibers department will be having a group show in late June. You can find more details about these shows through our Upcoming Events page.

We will continue to work with ACRE as a partner gallery. Over the summer we’ll be doing studio visits with ACRE residents and we will host new ACRE artists starting in September. We have just formed a new partnership with Spudnik Press, which we are thrilled about! We will be working with Spudnik’s artist in residence, Polly Yates to host an exhibition of her work in early fall. We have also been talking to Meredith Weber of Happy Collaborationists about a future collaboration between our spaces.

Over the summer we hope to post more updates and content including information about what we’re working on as well as photos and write-ups from our studio visits. Stay updated through the website or through facebook. You can also join our e-mail list to be reminded of events. Contact us at theplainesproject@gmail.com if you’d like to be included on the list or if you just want to say hi!
