She Art Chicago, 223 South Blvd., will feature 21 pieces by Forest Park artist Jill LoBianco at an opening event from 8 to 10 p.m. on Friday, June 10.
Like all the pieces at the gallery, women are the subject of LoBianco's work, which include acrylic paintings on canvas, digital prints and cray-pa drawings. LoBianco uses fabric, sequence and other applied materials to give her paintings a textured three-dimensional quality.
