Friends and art connoisseurs packed Wicker Park's Wag Artworks for the opening reception of Erik Sosa's fourth annual 'The Art-See Fart-See Show' Jan. 12.
'This is wonderful,' Sosa said of the turnout. Donations at the door benefited the non-profit organization Urban Gateways, which provides arts programs for kids. Sosa is heavily involved in non-profit agencies.
The local artist unveiled new pieces of his abstract art, which included cleverly titled paintings of futuristic olives; a cloud with silver lining; and pieces featuring bright, bold lines and hints of sparkle. Sosa's new pieces ranged in form and style, including optical illusions, geometric shapes and free-form fun with lines and color.
Wag Artworks is located at 2121 W. Division. Call ( 773 ) 772-2922 for more information.
