Rooted in Clay. Potter Dan McCabe began working with clay when he was a young student, and he has been refining his craft and teaching it to others ever since. “Between educating students about the ceramic process and the time spent in my home studio, my roots in clay grow deeper every day,” he said. “My hands have to be in clay as often as possible to continuously improve.” Dan’s work reveals his love for classical design as well as “personal oddity.” His pottery expresses a sense of homeliness yet excitement, quietness yet confidence, and duration yet vigor. “Like a good home, pottery expresses warmth, comfort, and spirit,” he said. “My hope for these vessels is that they stimulate the desire to touch the work and establish a relationship with it; from my hands to yours.”
Meet Dan McCabe and experience his creative process at his studio on Art Walk day. Artists Mairead Zigulich and Colleen Walsh will also have works on exhibit.
10416 S. Hamilton Ave.
Art and the Collective Whole. Artist and sculptor Brian Keane creates work that has a sense of the human touch. “Our humanity grounds us to each other and to our earthly home,” he said. “Who we are and how we live resonates from the individual to the collective whole.” Brian’s evocative work breaches the boundaries of geometry, color, and form and recalls “the sublime mystery at the heart of reality. Affirming the significance and beauty of the individual as a primary contributor to the global collective.” With contributions from artists James Ross and Charles Henry Lunsford, Brian’s studio will be transformed for a full art experience including music during the Art Walk.
10632 S. Hoyne Ave.
A Life of Artistic Achievement. Before Judie Anderson enrolled at the School of the Art Institute to earn a BFA, she fell in love with life behind the lions during a summer workshop when she was in elementary school. From that moment on, Judie has been pursuing and perfecting her amazing talent. A professional artist for more than 65 years, Judie has been a fashion illustrator, educational illustrator, editorial illustrator, and Chicago Tribune Art Director. That resume does not even begin to cover Judie’s artistic achievements. Since retirement, she has focused on watercolors. At Judie’s studio, you will be able to view and purchase her work, past and present, and enjoy a soft reveal of a collaborative work-in-progress with her daughter, author Karen Doornebos.

2059 W. 95th St.
Igniting Conversations. Over the past 30 years, Jomo Cheatham’s work evolved from single to multi-dimensional media with ideas informed by issues of social justice. In the early 2000s, Jomo began using collage elements and found objects to create compelling works focused on the history of lynching in America and how it targeted not just victims but their communities, resulting in a wealth gap that continues to impact financial and resource insecurity. Jomo’s recent work takes those issues even deeper. “My hope is that the work will ignite conversations about how policies initiated as far back as the Homestead Act of 1862 . . . were influential in cultivating pathways to economic prosperity for some while making difficult or denying the same pathways to others.”
