Center On Halsted Hosts Two Art Shows Opening August 28, 2009

Chicago, IL –(ENEWSPF)– Center on Halsted will debut two art exhibits simultaneously at a reception on Friday, August 28, 2009, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM, in the 2nd and 3rd floor art galleries at Center on Halsted, located at 3656 N. Halsted Avenue in Chicago. Both shows will run through October 4, 2009.

The Center’s 2nd floor gallery will feature the works of artist Rob Porazinski in a show entitled “Transformer.” Porazinski’s exhibit is an exploration of the continuously changing nature of our environment, self-perceptions, and personal relationships. The pieces incorporate emblematic images that initiate a dialogue about ambivalence and impermanence.

The Center’s 3rd floor gallery will feature the works of Chicago artist Liz Wuerffel in an exhibit entitled “Looking for Lala.” Wuerffel’s show explores queer life in Beijing through her photographs and stories.

This one-night, two-exhibit opening reception will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. $5 suggested donation (at the door) will go to support future cultural programming at Center on Halsted.
