CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — The artistic process – that mysterious zone between creative thinking and doing – will be explored in a new exhibition on view April 25 through May 31 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the College of Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“Strange Habit” features the work of Chicago-area artists Shane Huffman, Steven Husby, Emily Kennerk and Curtis Mann, and San Francisco-based artist Alice Shaw.

“Through painting, sculpture and photography, this exhibition details the unscripted dialogue between making and meaning,” said exhibition curator Luke Batten, a professor of art and design at the U. of I.

An opening reception is scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. today (April 25) at the gallery, 230 W. Superior St., Chicago.

The exhibition also will be featured from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 26 as part of the Artroplis Gallery walk sponsored by the Chicago Art Dealers Association.

I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
