Josué Pellot, New Work @ Chicago Cultural Center. Running until January 3rd, 2010

He works with photography, painting, screen-printing, video and sculpture. His exhibit at the Chicago Cultural Center on Michigan Ave. will be running until early 2010, and Pellot will be in attendance on December 3rd at 12:15 pm to talk about his gallery.
