Native South-sider James Jankowiak will have a show of his work opening tonight at the Beverly Arts Center.  Featuring work from the past 5 years, Jankowiak's paintings are a fun exploration through color.

Info from their site...
James was born (1969) and raised in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. Although his early forays in the Chicago graffiti scene proved to be influential upon several generations of spray can artists, he always took risks with his art and continues to evolve as a painter and installation artist. His work has been exhibited at several notable institutions such as the MCA, Northwestern University and the SAIC’s Roger Brown Gallery, and also continues to be accessible to the community through his work as a teaching artist with Urban Gateways, A.R.T. and Gallery 37. In 2010, he has solo shows scheduled for the Beverly Art Center and The Architrouve in Chicago, along with his first ever international solo exhibition at the Singers Sweatshop in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
