Meet Oak Park artist Paul Neumann at a reception for his solo exhibit, MADE MANIFEST. The exhibit will be on display in the Main Library Art Gallery through August 30.

Neumann examines the illusions of history through collage and spatial investigation. He is interested in abstracted historical narratives. His first solo exhibition is about the interplay of things, people, and places. Where do protagonists go when they feel lost? How do objects gain meaning? MADE MANIFEST is an exhibition of visual questions.

A common concern throughout Nick Bridge's work has been light, regardless of media or genre. "My desire to paint has manifested itself in exploration of the textures and juxtapositions of the urban landscape, remnants of our native prairie, the imagery of popular culture, still life and the human figure," notes Bridge.
