In the Corner of a Round Room

Share Button


Between social obligations and assorted tasks, I did not think that I would have time for an article this week. When I saw an octopus in the basket of a hot air balloon on Sunday, there was something to share. It hung in the window of Jackson Junge Gallery, announcing the new group exhibition In the Corner of a Round Room.

The surreal show draws inspiration from sideshows and exhibitions. There are sea goddesses, elephants, angler fish head portraits, and Klimt-like portals. The woman at the front desk (wearing a black flower on her lapel) told me that the show was in the planning stages for a long time; the stars finally aligned so that the gallery could bring the desired artists together and provide a coherent flow.

More information and images for In the Corner of a Round Room are available at I recommend visiting Jackson Junge Gallery at 1389 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL. I’ve always appreciated that it is welcoming to the public and has well informed staff. The show runs September 23, 2016 through October 30, 2016.
