Sick of getting your dose of American dailiness The RedEye? Check out the current exhibit at Eastern Illinois University's Tarble Art Center: Sinister. [Sinister] offers a look into a group of artists that are questioning the very nature of our daily lives, says curator and EIU art department faculty Chris Kahler. Many of my favorite exhibiting artists are based in or connected to Chicago. Dana De Ano, Saya Woolfalk and Alex Jovanovich are SAIC graduates.

John Parot teaches @ SAIC. Maria Tomasula studied at UIC and Northwestern, Sterling Ruby has shown at Apt 1R, Julia Farstad has an MA from UIUC, Chris Cosnowski teaches at Northwestern, and Renee Gory, Laurie Hogin, and Paul Nudd have studios in Chicago. The Tarble Arts Center is about a three hour drive from Chicago, so don't forget to entertain yourself.
