Boyfriends is very pleased to present the work of Chicago artist Ken Ellis. In this exhibition we will present a selection
of works from the past ten years, plus a few new pieces. Ellis has worked exclusively with hand-dyed mounted quilts for over
thirty years. His subjects include the famous and the infamous, fairy tales and folklore, Native Americans and the
Great Pioneers of America. He has also focused on African American history and culture, which led him to Afro-Caribbean Voodoo culture.
In the artist’s own words “I feel that my heart lays with the history of mankind and this is where I always return”
Please join us this Friday, September 15th from 8-11 PM and tour the history of these unique and iconic artworks that represent the output of an artist we greatly respect and admire.
