Even after 2 days of snow and frigid weather, we still had a great turnout at the opening for Lauren E. Simonutti’s show, 8 Rooms, 7 Mirrors, 6 Clocks, 2 Minds & 199 Panes of Glass. Lauren traveled by train from Baltimore to Chicago to participate in this weekend’s events. At the opening, I overheard her speaking to several viewers about the work; discussing her toning methods, the props included in specific images and her life during her self-imposed isolation. Today, Lauren discussed her work in front of a crowd of people who attended her artist talk. There was a great dialogue between Lauren and the audience throughout the presentation. If you missed today’s talk, check CEG’s website in a few weeks for her Artist Talk. Here are a few photos from the weekend.
