Kathy Weaver’s Robots
Featuring February and March 2016: Kathy Weaver – Five Exhibits.

Weaver’s robots and nano-technology forms can be seen in five separate exhibits: at The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art; H.F. Johnson Gallery; Carthage College in Kenosha; The Cliff Dwellers Club; Dan Addington Gallery, Chicago; and, and Zia Gallery, Winnetka.

In “Sentience,” five Chicago-based artists embrace mediums of construction, assemblage or collage in a range of vastly differing practices. Though David Criner, Marcos Raya, Tom Torluemke, Kathy Weaver and Stacia Yeapanis each work within their own unique artistic intentions, their works share a strangeness that results from the tension of commingling imagination with the stuff of everyday life.

In “Throes of Progress II” artists Jacqueline Moses, Kathy Weaver, and Dominic Sansone question the price of progress in an industrialized techno landscape. Is unchecked growth, in industry and the military, a path to intellectual and economic advancement? The serious subject matter delivers a surprise in dynamic color and gallows humor.
