Beth Reitmeyer: With Love
Valentine's Day has passed, but you can still revel in blissful, candy-colored splendor at this exhibition of new paintings and installations by Chicago-based artist Beth Reitmeyer. Her canvases are bright, poppy, op-art confections featuring repetitive, swirling, heart patterns embellished with glitter and glass beads. The installation features 14,000 red pipe cleaners sewn into heart shapes and linked together to form a plush curtain. Visitors are encouraged to take home one of Reitmeyer's works on paper gratis "valentines" that are clipped onto clotheslines and to leave behind their own card adorned with the glittery stickers and pens provided.

"With Love, Beth Reitmeyer: New Paintings & Interactive & Evolving Installation"
2006-02-01 until 2006-03-11
Zg Gallery, Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

Just in time for Valentine's Day at Zg Gallery in Chicago: With Love is a series of new paintings and an interactive and evolving installation by Beth Reitmeyer to celebrate "pure, happy, exuberant, over-the-top love." As obsessive as love itself, Reitmeyer's new works employ repetitive patterns of hearts in colors traditionally associated with love: flaming reds, purples and hot pinks.

Viewers will enter a room strung with handmade valentine postcards and are invited to express their feelings to a loved one through the selection of a "love drawing." In return, they are asked to leave behind another card expressing something about the intended recipient of the drawing. The installation, With Love, not only celebrates love itself, but also the people who are loved.
