“Touch and Go: Ray Yoshida and his Spheres of Influence” at the Sullivan Galleries
Ray Yoshida forged a distinctly mid-century Chicago style and this retrospective proves it. Curators John Corbett and Jim Dempsey once again tapped their deep knowledge of Chicago art history by including Yoshida’s circle of influences and peers within the exhibition. What emerges is not only a comprehensive survey of how Yoshida developed Imagism, but also how it stuck in the works of his friends and became a new milieu that artists still learn from today.
