Li - The River of Souls

Zhou Brothers New Series
Opening Exhibition: September 21, 2012  7-10 PM
Exhibition Dates: SEPT 21 - OCT 6

Li - The River of Souls gives name to an entirely new series of paintings inspired by the Li River in China. For the Zhou Brothers, this exceptional exhibition of symbolic abstract landscape paintings represents both a departure and a come back.

This exhibition is an exuberant visual excursion into the ethereal beauty of the Li River. The new abstract landscape paintings subtly pay homage to a historical past while revealing a visionary and modern future. Incorporating natural organic forms and delicate color palettes, the Zhou Brothers embrace a sense of intimacy with the landscape and demonstrate intense sensibility and reverence for the place they once called home.

"The river winds like a green silk ribbon, while the hills are like jade hairpins"
--- by HanYu (768-824), a famous Chinese poet of Tang Dynasty (618-907)

LIFE CYCLES by Gogy Farias
Exhibitions Dates: September 21 to October 15, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, September 21, 2012 from 7-10 pm


33 Contemporary Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Mexican sculptor Gogy Farias. This exhibition of prints and small sculpture works comes directly from Mexico City to Chicago for an exclusive view during Hispanic Heritage Month. Gogy Farias' exhibition titled Life Cycles presents a variety of subjects including expressive figurative works as well as natural abstract forms interpreted in dynamic compositions. The exhibition includes an extensive collection of works on paper from "Chaos to Cosmos", "The Hours of the Sun" and other well known and documented series.


Life Cycles explores the talent and sensibility of one of Mexico City's most established contemporary sculptors whose professional trajectory expands for over 30 years. Gogy Farias demonstrates a constant search for new forms that gracefully investigates the human condition and its multi-faceted life cycles. Through her visionary and ambitious imagination, Farias captures the aura, essence, and spirit of the natural elements that embrace our life experiences.

4Art Gallery is Proud to Present an Amazingly "Twisted" Exhibition




Reception Friday SEPTEMBER 21ST - 6pm-10pm



Taking symbolic descriptions from the Bible, The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse: TWISTED, asks modern- day artists to share their imaginative renditions of this fear-provoking scene. Drawing upon their knowledge of religion, experiences, and artistic practice these artists offer a warped perspective. Come join us for a twisted, jumbled, screwed, manipulated, altered, looped, and distorted experience.
