Prairie State College

Here are a few images from the last night's opening reception of "Organic".
I had a great pleasure of showing my work alongside the work of artists Karen Ami, Renee Robbins, and Allison Svoboda. Curated by the Christopher Art Gallery Director and artist Beth Shadur.

From the Gallery's Announcement:

"Prairie State College is hosting “Organic,” an exhibition of works using shapes and forms that are biological and uses nature as a source of inspiration. The exhibit will be on display from Monday, Nov. 7 through Thursday, Dec. 8, in the Christopher Art Gallery, located on the college’s main campus at 202 S. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights.
The exhibit will feature works by Karen Ami, Renee Robbins, Allison Svoboda and Ana Zanic. The artists use their imaginations to create forms that do not directly illustrate but more subtly suggest, naturally derived shapes and forms such as those found in the living world.
“Each artist has a passion for curves, elongations, sinuous lines and fluidity,” said Gallery Director Beth Shadur. “Their works elicit our sense of the fragility of the natural world, and yet its infinite ability to endure,” she added."
