Art Reception: Saturday, May 21, 2022, 6:30-8:30 pm, free admission, donation requested. Meet the exhibiting artists and view their artwork in three galleries:
Jill King: New Horizons
April 29 - June 17
Preston Jackson Gallery
Like celestial cloud formations, Chicago educator and artist Jill King’s sculptures are energetic three-dimensional gestural ‘drawings’ of twisted metal covered with stretched fiber adorned with ancient symbols. They tackle transformative emotional themes while harnessing the energy of swirling hurricanes or other-worldly flowers possessing bioluminescence.
Mike Baur and John Boylan
April 29 - June 17
The sculpture of Chicago based Mike Baur and the 2-D mixed media work of Peorian John Boylan are guided by traditional design principles and an instinct for frankness. Meticulous compositions arise from an infatuation with gritty, abandoned and common objects seemingly combined in casual assembly.
