Alumna Work in Juried Exhibition at Christopher Art Gallery

Evocative, an exhibition of sculpture, ceramics, paintings, photographs, prints and mixed media works was chosen by juror Paul Klein of Klein Artist Works. The exhibition opens on January 7, and features 50 small paper sculptures by Book and Paper alumna Laurie LeBreton.

Detail of LeBreton’s work Almost Enough.

Works were submitted by over 80 artists from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio. In choosing the 21 works from more than 270 submitted, juror Klein indicated that “I looked for art work gave me a sense of the artist, their purpose, and what they sought to communicate. I looked for sincerity, depth, and truth, as well as things that resonated for me.”

The exhibition runs from Exhibiting
January 7–30, 2013, with an artists reception on Thursday, January 10, 4:30–8:00 p.m. For more information on the exhibition and the Christopher Gallery at Prairie State College, click here.
