Tour Outside Inside with the Artists as Your Guides.

This tour was led by Julie Cowan, Gabrielle Egnater, Alan Hobscheid, and Suzanne Horwitz.

Outside Inside: Exploring Boundaries and Otherness displays new works created by Spertus Institute's second Chicago cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab. This yearlong initiative brought together twelve distinguished local artists for workshops, study, and critiques. During the course of the program, each participant created an artwork or series around the theme of boundaries.

Julie Cowan works with printmaking and drawing. Using the technique of paper lithography, she creates monoprint artworks from her photographs. Cowan’s work is represented by Vivid Gallery in Winnetka. She also shows her work in exhibitions throughout the US, including Artruck, a bi-annual Evanston exhibition that she curates.

Gabrielle Egnater is a sculptor born in Los Angeles. Her work has been shown in a variety of Chicago-area venues. She was recently selected a Buonanno Scholar at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she works as a teaching assistant in the Foundry Department and is a BFA student.

Alan Hobscheid is a widely exhibited artist working in oil painting, digital imagery, and photography. His subject matter ranges from landscapes and still lifes to images inspired by Jewish text. Hobscheid is also a trained cartographer and draftsman who teaches geography at Roosevelt University.

Suzanne Horwitz is a sculptor whose diverse body of work ranges from intimate portraits to large installations. Her works have earned numerous awards and been exhibited in locally and across the country. She teaches at the Art Center of Highland Park.
