The art of a Czech artist Mila Judge Furstova arrives in Chicago, this rising star of the graphic art currently living in Great Britain. The exhibition titled OF MYTHS AND MIND GAMES was opened on Thursday, February 22, 2007 at 5:30 p. m. at the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Chicago (Michigan Plaza Building, 205 N. Michigan Avenue, 16th floor, Suite 1680, Chicago, IL 60601). The work of Mila Judge Furstova will stay on display until March 31. New York based Rudy Linka Trio combining elements of funk, hiphop, folk and jazz added a special flavor to the atmosphere of the opening evening. The exhibition is organized under the auspices of the Consul General Hon. Marek Skolil and in cooperation with the Czech Center New York and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington.

Mila Judge Furstova is "... possibly one of the best original print artists to emerge for decades " (CityLiving, November 2003), "... a significant new printmaking talent whose career will be well worth watching." (Anne Desmet, Printmaking Today, 2004). Míla Judge-Fürstová exhibits her work widely in Britain and abroad. She has been awarded several major prizes for her work, including the Curwen Prize from the Mall Galleries, London, and the London Print Studio Prize at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol. The ideas within Míla's work originate deep in the artist's psyche. They embrace and mirror everyday experience entwined together with tales and dreams. She invites her audience to step into labyrinths of imagination whilst encouraging play with potential meanings within art. Míla Judge Furstova ´s work is executed largely in the medium of etching. This process has important qualities that compliment her way of visual thinking. The element of surprise in this technique results in a creative and sometimes unpredictable dialogue between the work and the artist. This exhibition of Mila Judge Furstova in Chicago is also to pay tribute to the 400th anniversary of the birth of a world famous Czech graphic artist Vaclav Hollar (1607 - 1677).
