This spring, Jennifer Greenburg accepted the invitation to work outside her photo-frame and collaborate on the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation's Public Art Initiative "K-9's for Cops." The work will display on Michigan Ave. with 300 other statues and eventually be on permanent display at the Kinzie Hotel in downtown Chicago.Read More
For years we have recommended artists to apply to Photolucida's Critical Mass (online review), and this year marked the first time jdc Fine Art was invited to review at the bi-annual portfolio review in Portland. (We represented the programming choices of both Schneider Gallery and jdc Fine Art at the review.) The Photolucida initiative is an arts nonprofit whose mission is "to provide platforms that expand, inspire, educate, & connect the regional, national & international photography community," and their aims were more than achieved.Read More

Van Coller has accompanied climate change researchers on expeditions to study tropical glaciers. Defined by latitude, most tropical glaciers will be extinct within the next decade. Centerpiece of the exhibition is an oversized artist's book, Kilimanjaro: The Last Glacier; it features landscapes & portraits of porters. Scale aligns the book with its subject, and recalls ledgers & atlases, thus conjuring themes of archiving, mapping, & exploration.Read More
Dreams connect the space between real and surreal. They derive from fragments of our stream of consciousness. Our life’s memories, our desires, and our fears reshuffle and play-back in visions that may appear obscured by double-vision, or be crystalized by a hyper-real clarity. Often, they exist with the support of an uncanny logic or disjointed symbolism. Whether hopeful or menacing, dreams pull on the strings of our most raw and primal emotions.Read More

The work of this emerging artist is both intimate and gruff. It carries a visceral immediacy. We feel these places, we don’t just see them through the Artist’s lens, and that is what makes them most uncomfortable- we are implicated by work that depicts a vision of American we may not like to think about, much less see.

Marjorie Salvaterra’s work is surreal. It is humorous; it is dark, and it unfolds like stills in a series on women under the stress of “supposed to be.” Sheila With Red Hair is about the pressure women put on their selves and each other; it is about the emotional toll of maintaining the straight-seamed, buttoned-up life in a “traditional American household.” This photographic artwork is about cracking. Salvaterra’s Sheila’s expose the emotional cost of appearing perfect.
EXHIBITION DATES: MARCH 19 - MAY 28, 2016
ARTIST'S OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, MARCH 19 | 6-8 PM | RSVP REQUIRED.
A city-kid from Chicago Jennifer Greenburg reveals the grit behind the glitter. She always knew she was an artist. She just did. As such, she has certain obligations- it is her job to record and reveal. Greenburg is an observer, a collector, and was a documentarian before she became disillusioned by the form. Everything in her life has led up to this- Revising History. The ongoing series is refining; this is the artist’s second solo show of the work at the Gallery. It is decidedly darker than earlier work, though it all belongs to the same creative body.Read More

Pages : Artists' Books | Publications | Related Works is a group show that features artist’s books and publications alongside a selection of editioned photographic prints they contain. Included in Pages are artist’s books by Paul Turounet and Ian van Coller, and recent publications by Jennifer Greenburg and Guillermo Srodek-Hart.
Books are traditional vehicles for artistic expression; they are intimate and implicative. Our viewing is dependent on our engagement- it is only our turning of the pages that activates them. This physicality helps us connect to the artists’ intention in a special way. Artist’s books are arguably among the most critically curated viewing experience an artist can offer, as the viewing-order is both calculated and fixed. Publications are major honors for artists; they collate bodies of work, often drawing a whole oeuvre together into one object. This exhibition celebrates both artists books and publications.Read More
