Elder Gallery Exhibit: Delusions/Illusions
Elder Gallery

Elder Gallery opens with artist Anne Harris' "Delusions/Illusions."

Harris, who teaches in the painting and drawing department of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has been re-inventing her self-portrait for the last 25 years. The self-perception has become a catalyst for invention. She thinks about mortality, aging, awkwardness, the relationship between sublety and intensity, and lately, the relationship between visibility and invisibility. 

Harris has exhibited at museums and galleries ranging from The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art to The National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian, to Alexandre Gallery and DC Moore Gallery in New York City. She has received many grants and awards, including a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist's Fellowship. 

Elder Gallery is located inside the Rogers Center for Fine Arts, 50th Street and Huntington Ave. The gallery is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.
