Visual artist and jazz singer Roberta Miles’ artwork will be showcased beginning Jan. 12 at Saint Xavier University’s SXU Gallery, 3700 W. 103rd St., Chicago.
Miles also will give a jazz vocal performance and discuss her exhibit, “The Alchemy
Series,” at an artist’s reception at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the SXU Gallery.
“The Alchemy Series” is a continuation of a series Miles has been working on for the past four years, combining ground metals with pigments and building up many layers. Her work has been described as “ethereal, atmospheric and dreamlike.”
“Who I am as an artist is the possibility of beauty and self-expression,” she said. “This is the life of my unconscious. It is the unconscious transformed into color and texture.”
The exhibit runs through Feb. 3. It is free and open to the public.
The SXU Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, please contact the SXU Gallery at (773) 298-3081.
