We are thrilled to introduce Evanston painters Janet Trierweiler and Matthew Schaefer as the next featured artists in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. Their show – titled We do not need to leave the Earth – is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library where you can catch it through February 28th. Working collaboratively as Calaj, their deluted oil paintings on linked canvases strive to create a viewing experience “of refreshing vulnerability and psychic relaxation.” You can learn more about Ms. Trierweiler’s and Mr. Schaefer’s Calaj paintings by visiting their website, and you can meet the artists themselves at a closing reception on Wednesday, February 26th at 7 pm. Also, make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in the month for an interview with the artists. Stay tuned.
