Touch & Go: Ray Yoshida and his Spheres of Influence

Artist and School of the Art Institute teacher, Ray Yoshida, will have a posthumous exhibition dedicated to him and to the lasting influence he had on his students and peers.  I've long enjoyed his work, especially the pieces with the elements cutout from old comic strips.  The show will be held at the School of the Art Institute's beautiful Sullivan galleries in the former Carson's building on State St.  In addition to Ray's work there will be paintings, drawings, and more by some of my favorite artists including Chris Ware, Roger Brown, Martin Ramirez, and Christina Ramberg.
