ART DISPLAY

ViM

Art this month is provided by G.M. KaRaS.

His first artistic passion was music and performance. He went to the Art Institute in Denver for photography before venturing to Chicago in April of 2010. He finished his Bachelors degree at Columbia College Chicago in December 2012 and then found a love for painting, poetry and sculptural arts in January of 2013, when he began ViM.

His plans for the future include attending the Graduate Program at CU Boulder and opening a art school/event theater and an all-ages, not for profit creative center to unleash one's potential. Visit G.M. online and see more of his artwork at: vim-art.gallery.

The exhibition will be on display April 18 - May 19.
