Like the English poet John Masefield, Jason Brammer has heeded the call of sea. The Chicago artist’s new solo exhibition, “Into the Deep,” explores the hidden mysteries down below in works inspired by nautical maps, navigational instruments, and medieval bestiaries. The show runs from Friday, June 7 through Friday, June 28 at Adventureland Gallery. There will be an opening reception on Friday, June 7 from 7-10 p.m. with the artist in attendance. AdventureLand is located at 1513 N. Western Avenue.
FYI, AdventureLand Gallery was created with the help of renowned local artist Tony Fitzpatrick and with the aim of helping out young and upcoming talent. Brammer, whose work is now featured in restaurants, recording studios, private residences, and the LinkedIn offices downtown, is relatively young but beyond the point of emerging. His approach to his craft is intensely disciplined and focused, in no small part because his wife, Erin Brammer, attends efficiently to the equally necessary business of marketing the art.
