pher based in Chicago, Mr. Gross
has attained an instinctual insight
into the Zhous' working conditions
and produced a strong environ-
mental portrait of contemporary
art in its process. Using tech-
niques that often mimic the
painters' own style, Mr. Gross
throws off a reflection that is un-
canny and accurate. A simple and
straightforward gaze is often fused
with "time-blurs" and other de-
vices which bend perceptions of
time and foreground.
An artist's reception and sign-
ing will be held Saturday, Sept. 9,
from 7-9 pm. The exhibition will
continue through Oct. 28. Call
