After almost a decade away from its Chicago roots, Melanee Cooper Gallery will celebrate its return with an opening exhibition on September 7 at its original location in the city’s River North neighborhood, where it first occupied the space 18 years ago. Its premiere exhibit is fittingly titled, “Coming Full Circle,” and will feature artists Alicia LaChance, Joanne Mattera and Arno Elias. Cooper aims to make the gallery a place of discovery, where visitors participate in open dialogue and are immersed in an environment that allows them to delve into works that interest and transport them. Guided by her keen eye for form, color and texture and with her freshly inspired vision, the gallery will showcase unique, deeply expressive collections of works that seek to engage and uplift the viewer. The gallery’s opening exhibition, “Coming Full Circle,” will feature evocative and emotional works of art that signify transformation and expression, much like the experience that Cooper recently had in California.
