‘Not Serious’ Exhibit Opens on January 27 at Union Street Gallery

CHICAGO HEIGHTS—(ENEWSPF)—January 14, 2016. Union Street Gallery (USG), 1527 Otto Boulevard, Chicago Heights will feature the exhibit ‘Not Serious,’ a sculptural and installation-based work that is functional insofar as it provokes, allows, or promotes play. The exhibit will open on Wednesday, January 27. A closing reception will be held on Saturday, February 6 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Gallery. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

‘Not Serious’ features six artists interested in the complex and at times contradictory experiences of art and play. And by play, we mean literal rather than some kind of diffuse metaphorical sense of play.  This is going to be a fun, high-energy show. Featured artists include: Cecilia Iwata, George Larson, Paula Pinho Martins Nacif, Alexander DeGraaf/Pastel Fractal, Kaleigh Moynihan and Lane Preston.

Gallery hours are Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., Friday from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information, call 708-748-2601 or visit
