Solo exhibition of 2D artwork

About One River School:

One River School of Art + Design is on a mission to transform art education in America. In a short window of time, our innovative program has taught thousands of students and established “a new direction in art education.”

One River School has developed a proprietary method for teaching a wide variety of art and digital programs to students of all ages in a state-of-the-art facility. Our curriculum focuses on hands-on experiences, and celebrates the most important artists and themes of the last 50 years.  

We also present exhibitions from emerging artists who are making work that we believe to be current, relevant and potentially important. Our exhibition series supports working artists and our mission to create more awareness for contemporary art.

We are currently looking for emerging professional artists, primarily working in 2D media, from the Chicago area to show their work in our gallery in Evanston. Check out our blog to see some of the featured artists who have exhibited at One River School in the past.
