Now, getting back to the exhibit—it will be from October 3–October 18 at Feed Arts & Cultural Center in Kankakee, Illinois—a mere 60 miles south of Chicago. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, October 18th, 7:00 – 10:00 pm. Hope you can make it!
Here is what Feed's site says about Javier Chavira:
Javier Chavira is an artist who has no misgivings about creating images that straddle the line between realism and abstraction. He is equally at home with the technical rigor of academic tradition and the liberating nature of formalism. A prolific artist, Javier has exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is in numerous public and private collections. Aside from being an active artist, Javier is also an educator. He is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Governors State University, a position he’s held since 2003. Javier is represented by 33 Contemporary Gallery, Chicago and currently resides in Crown Point, Indiana with his wife Sarah and their daughter Paloma.
