Ed Paschke's Women

I never get tired of viewing work by Chicago Imagist artist Ed Paschke.  Tonight there'll be a show of his paintings presented at two galleries in River North.  Info from their site...

Russell Bowman Art Advisory and Alan Koppel Gallery are jointly presenting the exhibition Ed Paschke's Women, which includes more than twenty paintings from all phases of the artist's career. Focusing on the varieties of female images, the exhibition extends from late 1960s collage-like works drawn from magazines and newspapers to the highly imaginative 'stripper' figures of the early 1970s to the film and video derived images of the 1980s. In the later 1990s and until his death in 2004, Paschke frequently focused on archetypal imagery suggesting Egyptian and classical goddess. The combined exhibition is the largest since that at the Chicago History Museum in 2006 and follows a survey exhibition curated by the artist Jeff Koons at Gagosian Gallery, New York.
