Archipelago: Lost Islands of the Atlantic Exhibit @ AdventureLand Gallery | January 18th 7pm – 10pm
Archipelago: The Lost Islands of the Atlantic Exhibit, a never before seen expedition featuring relics, specimens, curiosities and other worldly spectacles chronicled by natural historian, sequin queen, artist and printmaker, Janie Stamm. Opening January 18th at AdventureLand Gallery in Chicago, this show encourages viewers to explore their own islands?the thoughts, feelings, and places that have yet to be discovered in their own minds and the material world.
It was a humid spring evening when Janie Stamm was brought into the world. She grew up in the everglades, surrounded by all things wild and exotic. She received her BFA in both printmaking and animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her artwork is a reflection of all of the brain juices pumping through her mind. These juices are composed of strange and unusual beasts. She spends most of her time drawing creatures and exploring local woodlands. Her artwork has been shown in galleries in Savannah and Atlanta, Georgia and is featured on the SCAD website. She is a member of Southern Graphics Council International an received an emerging artist award a 2012 and is represented by Kai Lin Art.
Adventure, fortune and wisdom await the willing viewer as they explore the remains of hidden lands through installation works, cartographic portraits, felt replicants and an illustrative series.
Archipelago: The Lost Islands of the Atlantic is the first in a series of interactive experiences for exceptional gallery participants. Grab a map at the door and find your way to treasured delights for your private collections.
