Event Description:

Chicago artist Tom Schneider draws on the marvelous, weird, and improbable for his large-scale paintings, each of which is based on a story lifted from the tabloids or drawn loosely from mythologies. Schneider’s narrative canvases feature strong color and a vivid sense of pattern and design. Schneider honed his style in the 1980s at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he worked with famous Chicago Imagist artist Karl Wirsum, part of the Hairy Who.
