First Friday Gallery is back at Picnic! This Friday is the opening for The Mystical Body featuring artwork from Nancy VanKanegan. The show will also feature live music from Baby No Name & Friends. This will be the first of the new series taking place every three months [first Friday of December, March, June, September].
After being raised in a big family in a small town in northern Illinois, VanKanegan earned a BFA from Illinois Wesleyan University and an MA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Education from Columbia College Chicago.
Her multi-disciplinary art involves making and doing inspired by dreams, travels and yoga. These works address personal and social enigmas and narratives derived from myth, legend and ritual as they weave into contemporary life. She has exhibited and performed locally, nationally and internationally. At present she teaches art and yoga courses at Columbia College, Northeastern Illinois University and DePaul University.
