Here is a South Holland event worth getting out of the house for on Sept. 23 through Oct. 18.
“1 & ONE”: This free exhibition by Joanne Aono debuts in South Suburban College’s Lee E. Dulgar Gallery, 15800 S. State St., South Holland, and continues to Oct. 18. An artist reception is slated for 12:30 p.m. Oct. 2.
Aono, of Chicago, studied in the Studios Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Her work has been featured in several Chicago-area exhibitions.
“Dualities, along with comparisons and contrasts, are underlying themes in my drawings and paintings,” Aono said.
“Through my life as a twin and my bicultural experience as a Japanese American, I use visual and conceptual pairings to depict the universal quest to maintain a collective identity while projecting a sense of individuality.”
The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and closed on weekends and holidays.
Information: (708) 596-2000, Ext. 2445 or Ext. 2300.
