Join us at Oliva Gallery for an extraordinary exhibition, “This Long Pursuit,” showcasing the intertwined lives and artistic endeavors of Kelly McKaig and Bruce Riley. As partners for 38 years and artists for even longer, their creative visions have evolved in tandem, resembling a double helix bound together by time and love. While their artistic styles may vary, the common familial ground that has nurtured their art practices is undeniable.

Curated by the esteemed Kate Roth, this exhibition offers a glimpse into the profound connection between McKaig and Riley, exploring the depths of their individual journeys and the beautiful convergence of their artistic expressions.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to witness the synergy of two remarkable artists whose work speaks volumes about dedication, passion, and the enduring power of love.

This project is partially supported by an Individual Artists Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
