Dubhe Carreno Gallery is proud to announce the official opening of a new gallery space in the Chicago Arts District/ Pilsen East in September of 2004 specializing in contemporary ceramic art. Dubhe Carreno is a native of Venezuela now permanently living in Chicago after obtaining her masterrs degree in 2001 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she currently teaches in the ceramics and first year program departments. During this summer the gallery will be open by appointment and will establish regular business hours after our grand opening in the fall.

Dubhe Carreno Gallery's primary focus is to contribute to the development of contemporary ceramic art through the exhibition of a diverse range of artists who deal with issues of contemporary relevance. This gallery will serve to fulfill Chicago's need for a venue strictly dedicated to exhibiting and promoting artists who explore new tendencies in the field of ceramics. Dubhe Carreno Gallery's goal is to create exhibitions and events to educate its audience about the development of contemporary ceramics. The idea of having a venue strictly for artists working in the field of ceramics is not intended to alienate ceramics from the rest of the arts, but rather to concentrate energy into educating art audiences about the physical and conceptual versatility of today's ceramic art. Another objective is to promote artists who in many cases have transformed ceramics into a new genre by breaking deeply rooted conventions based on ceramics' past and its inevitable association with functionality and tradition, while remaining conscious of this history's inherent potential to inform current tendencies and preoccupations in art. Dubhe Carreno Gallery also aims to introduce international ceramic artists to the United States, thereby expanding their visibility and offering to the public a culturally diverse range of formal and conceptual languages.
