FREE Members Party: Emmett Kerrigan, Shannon Kerrigan and Bryan Kerrigan, April 7Order Enquiry
Meet three fascinating artists who gutted and rehabbed a former powder coating factory to create beautiful living and work space. Emmett brings Chicago’s industrial and working class neighborhoods to life in boldly colored, impasto layered oil paintings and crafted wooden reliefs. Across the street, we’ll visit Shannon’s studio where she welds iron sculptures. Upstairs, Emmett’s brother, Bryan produces high relief hand-crafted ceramic tiles which have been featured in Design Magazine. The Kerrigans also have a collection of work by artists Michael Ferris, Juan Chavez and Cody Hudson. Wine and refreshments will be served.
