A Snapshot of Chicago's Art Community

The show's most effective single image, Mark Phillips' "Wander," blends abstraction and the figure with consummate subtlety and maximum emotional effect. Without polemics or preaching, this mixed-media work -- with its lone human form hunched and barely visible in a swirl of anxious color -- suggests the fragility and loneliness of the individual in this noisy, fractious world. It's powerful and haunting.
