Peter Walsh – “Seven Treasures” Pop-Up Art Exhibition

Thursday, October 24, 6-9 p.m.
2337 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647

Chicago artist Peter Walsh exhibits his new series of paintings, “Seven Treasures,” inspired by traditional Japanese fabric patterns from the recent Art Institute of Chicago Ukiyo-e art show. Some of the original patterns are over 300 years old, but are as bold, graphic, and arresting as if they were created today — an intriguing jumping-off point for Walsh’s combination of abstract painting with hand-sewn canvas elements, creating his own modern versions of the Japanese kimono.
