I spent much of yesterday with Gallery Director, Nickole Lanham, hanging and lighting the "Meditative Surfaces" exhibition in the Schoenherr Gallery of North Central College. The show—consisting of substantial wall hangings by Deanna Krueger, large-scale photographs by Maggie Meiners and a variety of my surface paintings—is meant to spark interest through the variety of media while using the cohesive concept of surface patterns to engage the viewer. Connections of color and color shifts are used as transitions to introduce the viewer to adjacent work. The meditative qualities of the work is relaxing as the viewer wanders through the exhibition.
The opening reception for "Meditative Surfaces" is Friday, July 24 from 6-8 at the Schoenherr Art Gallery of North Central College. The reception is free and open to the public. The seventeen works included in the exhibition are available for purchase. The Schoenherr Art Gallery is located at 171 E. Chicago Avenue in Naperville, Illinois 60566. The exhibit continues through August 21.
