Youthful Thoughts



Third Fridays at The Zhou B Art Center


“The Zhou B Art Center opens Exhibitions every 3rd Friday of the month with an evening reception from 7pm-10pm. These events are free of charge and provide the community of Bridgeport and the Chicago area a unique opportunity to explore a blend of international and local art. The artists-in-residence at the Art Center open their studios to visitors, making this a unique opportunity for the community to meet working artists and discuss their work in person. The variety of the work produced by the artists-in-residence and the four in-house gallery spaces makes the Zhou B Art Center 3rd Friday Exhibitions one of the most diverse art experiences in the city.” (From Zhou Brothers.)


“The 85,000-square-foot warehouse is named after its owners, successful Chinese artists and brothers Shan Zuo and DaHuang Zhou, who bought the building in 2004. Along with the 50 or so studio spaces it offers, the building boasts approximately 12,000 square feet of exhibition space, a stylish cafe and bar lounge, event spaces and several smaller gallery spaces showing contemporary work.”  Chicago Tribune

 

About Diana Leviton-Gondek


Diana is a resident artist at Zhou B Art Center.  Her bold and beautiful figurative art pops out from her studio walls.  In her view,  “ Art is created in stories. Stories are created in art. My paintings have their foundations in stories of my life told in bold, engaging one act plays. They draw the audience in and holds them in the theatre of canvas. How each tale is received and meaning conveyed is left to those experiencing my work.”
