Amy Babinec: Infill

Webinar Artist Talk: Thursday, April 1, 4 to 5 p.m.

 

Amy Babinec’s drawings and paintings focus on lost memory, trauma, and DIY archaeology. An upbringing in the coal country of Illinois informed her practice of documenting objects found in abandoned mines. She teaches at South Suburban College in South Holland, Illinois, and is an artist-educator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

 

Webinar Artist Talk:  Humaira Abid
Tuesday, April 20, 4 to 5 p.m.

 

Humaira Abid was born and raised in Lahore, Pakistan. She immigrated to the United States in 2008 and now lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Through her artistic process Abid gathers ordinary objects from everyday life and transforms them into something extraordinary. Her turned and carved wood sculpture and paintings—known for their exquisite detail—depict human relationships, societal repression, and the consequences of keeping basic truths from being discussed and shared.
