I recently caught the opening of a really interesting show at Pilsen’s The Chicago Art Department Gallery. Co-Owner, KS Rives found some abandoned maps in Paris left by street book vendors whom hastily fled a rainstorm. Once dried, the maps became the basis for Rives current body of work. She painstaking Exacto-knives out details and reassembles them in to graphic and textural collages.

This Friday will be the last chance to see “Entre les deux,” her solo show at The Chicago Art Department.
