The art show “Recollection” is taking place next month in Evanston at 1100 Florence.

It is an examination of the works of Ben Blount, who is an artist and printer from Detroit. He has a background in graphic design and advertising. The show will be illustrating his views on race and culture in America. It is set to feature letterpress prints, booklets, interactive exhibits and handmade books. One of the pieces expected to be on display is “Spread from ABC: An Abecedarium of Black Culture”.

There is an opening reception to be held on February 4 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm; guests will enjoy refreshments, a tour of the show and may have the opportunity to meet the artist. This will be followed by an artist’s talk on February 12 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

This Evanston exhibit should be of interest to those involved in graphic design as well as those interested in black culture. In addition to online information, organizers may decide to invest in marketing materials such as flyers to help market the event.

“Recollection” will be showing at 1100 Florence on February 4 to 14. The gallery is open on weekends from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Admission to the exhibit, the reception and the artist’s talk is free of charge. For more information, visit the Facebook page or call 847-544-8205.
