Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present our first solo show by Chicago-based artist Rafael E. Vera.

Rafael E. Vera has spent years slowly renovating his own home. The sculptures and works on paper in this show share a focus on the underlying reality of domestic building structural elements. The hidden forms which provide support and make possible the domicile are exposed and depicted as mundane and anonymous, yet ripe with abstract qualities. Concrete foundations and wood framing, unremarkable and utilitarian, freed from their role as building materials transform their quotidian existence and are newly interpreted.

There will be an Opening reception on Saturday, March 9 from 5–8 pm. A Closing reception will be held on the last day of the show, Saturday April 27, 2013,  with an artist’s talk by Rafael E. Vera at 6 pm. Gallery hours are Wednesday–Friday 11–6 and Saturday 12-5, or by appointment at other times.

All gallery events are free and open to the public. Additional exhibition information, press releases and high resolution images may be found at the gallery website at bgfa.us.
