JEFFERSON PARK — An archivist who has been cataloging and examining the contents of internationally acclaimed artist Ed Paschke’s Rogers Park studio will present his findings at the Ed Paschke Art Center in Jefferson Park.
Jason Nargis, the first resident archives fellow at the center, will compare the artist’s studio with his office at Northwestern University and explore how Paschke the professor and Paschke the painter "coexisted, challenged, and inspired one another" from 5:30-7 p.m. Oct. 15, organizers said.
Paschke, who often was called Chicago's most important visual artist, also taught for 27 years at Northwestern University, where he served as the chairman of the department of art theory and practice.
Nargis is a manuscript librarian in the Northwestern University library.
Paschke's work has been featured in a retrospective at the Art Institute and at the Pompidou Center in Paris.
The Ed Paschke Art Center, 5415 W. Higgins Ave., opened on what would have been the artist's 75th birthday in 2014.
Light refreshments will be served.
