Grace Church of Logan Square is pleased to announce the creation of an Artist-In-Residence program with Amie Sell as the inaugural artist. Join us for an opening reception featuring her most recent project, “Home Sweet Home,” on Saturday October 25, from 6-8pm at Grace Church. An exhibition of this work will be on view in the studio space at Grace Church from October 4 - January 4th. Open studio hours will take place every Sunday from 11:30am – 12:30pm and public programs in conjunction with the artist will be announced separately.

Amie Sell is a long-term resident of Logan Square. Her project “Home Sweet Home” deals with the architectural and emotional implications of redevelopment and displacement in the neighborhood. Blankets, a chair and a collage holding imagery depicting areas of the neighborhood currently involved in this stasis of change. While in residence at Grace Church, Sell will be returning to work on an ongoing project that investigates memory and emotional space of “home.” Sell has moved over twenty times in her life and as a result has a wide range of definitions of home. She hopes to spend the time in residence solidifying this project into a comprehensive body of work.
