EXPO CHICAGO 2024: "Threads"

11 - 14 April 2024
Claire Oliver Gallery is pleased to return to EXPO CHICAGO for the ninth year in a row, presenting an exhibition of new works by artists Gio Swaby and BK Adams. On view at booth #356 from April 8 – 14, "Threads" features more than 15 new works including Swaby’s signature textile portraits and Adams’ mixed media lion portraits, created specifically for this exhibition. Threads marks Swaby’s return to Chicago following her blockbuster solo exhibition Fresh Up, which was on view at The Art Institute of Chicago in April-July, 2023. For EXPO 2024, Swaby created a new body of works that speak directly to self-confidence, collaboration, and community. In tandem, artist BK Adams presents a series of new paintings that induce self-empowerment and assertiveness.
