  Curator's Talk on Steven Robnett's Artwork at Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery   

CHICAGO, IL—Please join us for a gallery talk on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 from Noon-1:00pm about the work of Steven Robnett, one of the artists in the current exhibition Focus 4: Four Solo Exhibitions. This informal conversation will be lead by ISM Director of Art Jim Zimmer.

Steven Robnett’s exhibition, curated by ISM Director of Art Jim Zimmer, features paintings and drawings that tell ambiguous stories of our human existence. Inspired by memory, news photos, and art historical references, Robnett‘s subjects range from the whimsical to the unsettling, skillfully rendered in his distinctive form of realism.

Focus 4 is an ongoing program that highlights the work of accomplished Illinois artists in four separate exhibitions. The artists are selected by four fine arts curators from various sites of the state-wide Illinois State Museum system.

Free and open to the public. For more information contact Doug Stapleton at (312) 814-5320 or Jane Stevens at (312) 814-5318.
