21st Century Neanderthal




21st century Neanderthal is a research into today’s online dating world seen through artists’ eyes, mixed with every day’s righteousness and immorality.

The impersonality of online dating caused us to question the behaviour of current society. We invite artists to step into this digital world where fantasy and reality blur, where the lines cross and the perfect version of the truth is never quite what it seems. Communication is contorted as the rules no longer apply.

Things are sometimes easier to understand if they are put into art form. Some rough experiences may be overcome when one takes time to transform them into art. The unsuspecting dating site users might become warned of potential dangers or distressing situations. Someone might just be sharing their hilarious story of a disasterous date that they will be telling their grandchildren.

This exhibition challenges and exposes these online experiences through art, engaging visitors to share their own.

Women Artists: Speak Out About the Issues!





Women Artists Speak Out About the Issues!


February & March 2019

Liz Long Gallery

1957 S. Spaulding Ave. at 21st   

Chicago, Illinois   60623

In addition to other subjects of interest to women, artists ARE ENCOURAGED to create and submit art that tells a story about violence against women & girls - whether in the past or current. We gather art for display that shows how violence against women & girls is happening now, and how it's use in the past, shows how women have been controlled through fear.

Rape keeps women from going outside and having a full life. Domestic violence keeps women in abusive relationships and away from their own personal power. Honor killings keep women from leading full lives & having options. These are just a few ways that women are controlled by violence.

Women need to continue to speak up and let their voices be heard. Men who support women need to get on board. Women need platforms for their opinions and their voices to be heard. This art show will allow viewers to discuss what they see, and what the status of women's & girls lives are like.

During the art show, we will offer art workshops to make art about issues women are particularly concerned about.


Right now these are the shows coming up:                   

February/March: Women Speak Up About Important Issues              

April/May: International Artists                                                  

June/July: About Animals

August/December: Represented artists (and other shows as appropriate)

Divergent Evolution





Divergent Evolution

Tracing the factors that lead to the creation of a single work of art - or series - can be linear or oblique, requiring hindsight of a quasi- archaeological level. What was the spark, the precedent, the breakthrough, the catalyst that led to this specific piece?

Artists are invited to submit two or more works that bear evidence (if only to their creator) of the evolution of their practice. Perhaps a work made a few years ago, viewed today, unmistakably includes formal or thematic preoccupations that now dominate your most current body of work. What are the kinship systems in your studio: parent-child, sibling, cousin, orphan? Is there a hierarchy that until now, perhaps, had not been articulated? Is your work influenced by the other artists with whom you share a cultural ecosystem? Or is the environment shaping it exclusively the landscape within your brain?

Emma Wilcox is the Gallery Director at Gallery Aferro, where, with Co-Founder and Artistic Director Evonne Davis she has designed and implemented hundreds of exhibits, public programs, educational initiatives, public art projects as well as more than two dozen publications. Wilcox is a practicing artist. She studied photography at the School of Visual Arts and was part of the 2015-2017 cohort of the Prudential Foundation Nonprofit Executive Fellows Program at the Institute for Ethical Leadership at Rutgers Business School. She lectures regularly on art and cultural engagement topics, including a  2016 TedX talk. More information about Wilcox can be found on our website or at afferro.org.
