It’s time for another art gallery opening at Picnic!

Join us for another unforgettable First Friday Gallery opening party featuring “The Wandering Hibiscus” by local artist, Lisa Jean Allswede.

Lisa Jean Allswede is a Chicago-based artist, educator, curator, and activist dedicated to
using the transformative power of art to foster community and celebrate diversity. Inspired by the ephemeral beauty of the hibiscus, Lisa Jean’s work captures fleeting moments of grace and resilience, mirroring the profound and lasting influence of feminist movements.

Passionate about the magic of using a sewing machine, Lisa Jean sews on unconventional materials, transforming everyday objects into canvases for intricate narratives. Each stitch weaves together stories of strength and solidarity, honoring personal and collective histories, and celebrating the power of women.

With a leadership style that values every voice, Lisa Jean creates art that builds camaraderie and promotes equity, transforming the community into an inclusive and safe space for all.

As always, our art galleries are a free event! Come by to immerse yourself in art and wine with friends!
