Galerie F presents: ‘Red and Royal’ by Andrew Ghrist

Gallery Openings / Exhibitions

Andrew Ghrist is a Chicago based artist, illustrator, and printmaker with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work consists of equal parts fantastic organic illustration of nature and graphic elements created by the printmaking process. Andrew Ghrist’s prints, and even more so his original drawings, exhibit dedication to craftsmanship and detail, transforming the work into artifacts of countless hours spent diligently crouched over an image.

Andrew Ghrist’s new exhibition “Red and Royal” is collection of work that explores the majesty of the avian world with a color so powerful it runs through our veins. One can experience the reverence that Ghrist has for birds through his labored representations of this diverse group of creatures. There is a level of emotion expressed through every feather carefully crafted by the strokes of red ink. Ghrist takes the time to highlight these marvelous birds depicting them with crowns enhancing their regal presences. The birds themselves are a work of art, with an elegance that never seems to wane and is only enhanced by the shades of vermilion and scarlet.

On Friday, June 9th from 6–10PM Galerie F Underground presents this rich collection of brand new works from beloved local talent, Andrew Ghrist
