French Artist David Gista

Please join us at our Wicker Park gallery for an artist talk with French artist David Gista, whose paintings are featured in our “A La Française: The French Way,” of which he is also the curator. David Gista was born and raised in Paris, and now divides his time between France and the United States, having established his artistic career on both continents. Gista studied art at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and so combines his classical fine arts training with his keen-eyed examination of modernity, creating a running commentary on contemporary life expressed in a variety of media.

Date And Time: Sat. Sept. 25, 6:00-7:00 PM, reception immediately following

Location: Springboard Arts Chicago Gallery

Artist Talk Series

Chicago Artist Tracy Ostmann Haschke

Please join us at our Wicker Park gallery for an artist talk with Chicago artist Tracy Ostmann Haschke, whose paintings are featured in our Paradigm exhibit. She says, “My work is about people. I work with imagery that depicts and narrates moments in time. These are glimpses of figures moving about hurriedly, or stopped to greet an acquaintance, or paused to acknowledge a disruption. I leave gender, race, and age hazy and uncertain.”

Date And Time: Fri. August 6, 6:00-7:00 PM, reception immediately following

Artist Talk Series

Chicago Artist Paul Branton

Please join us at our Wicker Park gallery for an artist talk with Chicago artist Paul Branton, whose acrylic paintings and mixed media works on paper are featured in our “Illuminate” exhibit.

The talk will be facilitated by Erica Hubbard, Associate Director of Civic Relations and Partnerships at Art Institute of Chicago. Branton and Hubbard have worked closely together at the museum, and she has watched his art evolve over the years.

Branton was born in 1973 in Chicago. He was influenced at an early age by the sights & sounds of the South Side’s urban environment. Writing short stories & putting on plays with his sister quickly became a passion and a means of expressing himself. It was this passion that guided his education, which ultimately guided his career.
