Arthur Roger Gallery at EXPO Chicago
Navy Pier | Galleries | Booth 301
VIP Preview: Thursday, April 11
Public Days: Friday, April 12 - Sunday, April 14

The Arthur Roger Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the EXPO Chicago 2024. The fair opens on Thursday, April 11 for a VIP preview and continues with General Admission through the weekend.

At the Arthur Roger Gallery booth, the vibrant diversity of New Orleans becomes the canvas for a compelling exploration of the human story. Each artist showcased here draws deep inspiration from their cultural roots, weaving threads of identity, belonging, and the interplay between past and present into their art. These diverse voices serve as a resounding testament to the strength of New Orleans, and the artworks we've curated underscore the profound ability of art to bridge cultural divides and cultivate understanding.

Moreover, the artists' skillful utilization of varied mediums and techniques enriches the exhibition's tapestry.. Robert Colescott’s paintings facilitate a dialogue around race, and Deborah Luster’s photographic portraits of incarcerated Louisianians draw you into their story, while Rob Wynne’s mirrored glass reflects one’s truths. Each work stands as a testament to innovation and the human story. This rich spectrum of mediums not only celebrates the limitless potential within contemporary art but also speaks to the depth of creativity inherent to the American South.

Every artist, through their distinctive lens, reflects upon the universal human experience. Their collective body of work delves unflinchingly into the complexities of emotions, histories, and perspectives. As these artists join together to explore the multifaceted nature of the human condition, we all stand to gain profound insights.

Indeed, it's through diversity that we discover strength. As the Arthur Roger Gallery brings forth a chorus of voices, an array of media, and a tapestry of depth and texture, we skillfully navigate the intricate landscape of identity, society, and personal narratives. These artworks unfurl the intricate layers of emotions, histories, and perspectives, leading us on a shared journey through the profound exploration of the human experience. This very journey binds us together in the tapestry of our collective existence.
