Out of Line Art Gallery
Recollections’: A One Woman Show.
Wednesday November 8, 6:30 pm, Reception in celebrating Chicago artist Linda Platt.
Ms. Platt came from an immigrant family of carpenters, seamstresses, repairmen, gardeners, and ‘alley pickers’. Self- taught, she has learned from each one to become one of the most versatile artists in Chicago. She makes books, collages, wearable art, sculpture and mosaics from scraps of fabric, paper and broken dishes. While she borrows themes from tradition, her art is breathing, dynamic and alive. As for the quilt appreciators among you- come and admire her theme oriented gorgeous quilts as well as the rest of her art. The show will last till November 13.
