Steve Rebora: Retrospective
July 14 through September 2
Opening Reception: Friday, July 14, 5-9 pm
Please join us at
Vale Craft Gallery on Friday, July 14 from 5:00
to 9:00 pm for a reception
to celebrate the life and work of Chicago artist
Steve Rebora. A beloved Vale Craft Gallery
artist for the past 18 years, Steve Rebora
passed away on June 9 at the age of 83.
A retrospective exhibition with over 30 of
Steve's sculptures will continue at the gallery
through September 2. The show of painted wood
sculptures will feature a wide range of Steve
Rebora's whimsical subjects including birdhouse
birds, magician's rabbits, boaters, cowboys,
puppets, gargoyles, angels, and Santa Claus
figures. A cartoonist as a young man with a B.A.
in Fine Art from the University of Notre Dame,
Steve returned to making wood sculpture after
his retirement from the floor covering industry.
His humorous and lighthearted pieces
achieve the effect of a three-dimensional,
vibrantly colored cartoon.
Also on view at Vale Craft Gallery will be our
Summer Group Show featuring work by over 50
artists, including Steve's wife, Joyce Rebora.
The July 14 reception is held in conjunction
River North Art District's Midsummer Art Walk,
a special evening of receptions at
20 neighborhood galleries.
