The Southeast Chicago Coalition of Artists will hold its first Arts Fair along a three-block stretch of 91st Street, known locally as the “Heart and Soul Street” of the community. The first Coalition Arts Fair will be grounded at the two anchor locations. The Authors Section will be located in the parking lot of the Claretian Associates office building, a restored three-flat located at 9108 S. Brandon Avenue, on whose north wall are honored the community members who gave the “last full measure of devotion” for their community and for their nation during the Vietnam War. The Performance Section at South Chicago People’s Park on the eastern end, will honor the phoenix that arose from an oppressive mound of debris that had accumulated for years following the loss of several buildings formerly occupying that site.

Joe Zucker: The Grid Paintings
Joe Zucker’s work has always moved between material and concept, between image and process, whether in his well-known cotton ball paintings, his figurative paintings of pirate ships, or his recent works using gypsum and watercolor. In this exhibition, Corbett vs. Dempsey is proud to show the first mature body of work in Zucker’s oeuvre; the grid based paintings he made from 1963 to 1968, when the New York artist was based in the Midwest, first in his birthplace of Chicago, then in Minneapolis.
