The art and design department of South Suburban College is presenting two exhibitions that have closing receptions scheduled for the artists on Sept. 17, according to a release from the college.
A new exhibition titled “Trail to Arcadia” is on display in the Lee E. Dulgar Gallery. “Trail to Arcadia” is the show’s title piece for the exhibition of watercolor paintings from Chicago-based artist Anna Zanic that is exhibiting at the South Holland campus through the closing reception at noon Sept. 17.
Zanic was born in Vinkovci, Croatia, in 1976. She earned her master’s of fine arts from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 2002.
In this body of work, the abstracted notion of atmospheric landscape is a metaphorical expression of life’s mysterious and elusive path, according to the press release. Works are built with layers of watercolor washes, intermixed with dynamic lines, scribbles and marks of ink drawing, it said. There is a quiet tension between the watercolor’s fluidity, softness and calm vs. the dynamic, rhythm and energy of drawing, the release said.
“Trail to Arcadia” joins another exhibition at SSC already on display in the Dorothea Thiel Gallery titled “Welcome to Earth,” a select body of ceramic sculptures from artist Matthew Groves that is exhibiting through the closing reception at 11 a.m. Sept. 17, the release said.
“Welcome to Earth” is both figurative and narrative, reflecting Groves’ unique point of view and demonstrating his passion for craft and traditional forms, the release said.
The public is welcome to visit art exhibitions and receptions at no charge.
The Dulgar Gallery is on the first floor near the Atrium, and the Thiel Gallery is on the fourth floor in the Art & Design hallway.
SSC galleries are open, at minimum, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.
The galleries are closed on weekends and holidays.
