    Nicole Longnecker Gallery announces the solo exhibit, “Back on the Grid,” from Chicago-based artist Eric Ockrassa. The exhibit will open at the gallery’s new West 11th Street location with a Thursday, January 30, 2020 artist’s reception from 6pm – 8pm. \"Back on the Grid” runs through February 29, 2020. “I first saw Eric’s work in 2013 at a University of Houston student exhibit,” said gallery owner Nicole Longnecker. “It was apparent he had a unique artistic vision with his use of hard geometric shapes and optical elements. We are excited to show Eric’s work for the first time in our new space.” ERIC OCKRASSA BIO: Eric Ockrassa is a Texas native, living in Chicago, who considers himself a hard edge abstractionist, working with visual systems and color relations. His inspiration is derived from his fascination with artists like Roy Lichtenstein and Nicholas Krushenick.  Eric received degrees in both painting and graphic design, followed by his MFA in painting from the University of Houston in 2015. He lives and works with his wife, Chrissy in Chicago.
