The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art is delighted to announce Naturally opening on February 5, 2022 featuring works by Judith Roston Freilich and NSS Beth El member, Lilach Schrag. Fascinated by forces of nature and mind, Judith Roston Freilich and Lilach Schrag examine, each in her own way, essence, energy, and evolution. With images and materials drawn from both her natural and domestic environment, Lilach Schrag uses organic found objects, fabric, paper, enamel, and acrylic paints, charcoal, graphite, threads, pins, and staples in making large-scale energy-packed paintings with epic figures and creatures transforming into each other and into vegetation. Layered, camouflaged, and not immediately identified, they convey a sense of awe, urgency, determination, and vulnerability.  The natural materials rich with texture, meaning, and previous life sends Schrag  on a fantastic flight, and at the same time keeping her grounded in this physical world. For more information, go to https://uima-chicago.org/events/2022/2/5/naturally-opening-reception
