Firecat Projects presents Mysterious Friends, an exhibition featuring new work from former Chicagoans Anna Gross and Fran Lee. Taking a closer look at the relationships between humans and animals, neighbors, and strangers, Mysterious Friends explores imaginary new worlds with humor and warmth.
Join us on Friday, June 23 from 7 - 10 for the exhibition reception. Beverages will be provided by Temperance Beer Company and Red & White Wines.
Anna Gross is a paper artist and illustrator living in Los Angeles, CA. Armed with an X-ACTO Knife and a stockpile of colored cardstock, Anna has been making art in the DIY sphere since 2012, designing flyers and posters for punk shows, lit readings, and community theater. Anna’s work in Mysterious Friends follows the life and times of three neighbors—a bandit, a spy, and an unwitting little worm. It is her first exhibition. See more of her work online at annagross.co
