Now that spring has arrived, a new gallery season is upon us. And there are three you might want to see at the Governors State gallery.
The 2010 Student Art Exhibition runs from March 30, through April 7. The opening reception and awards ceremony is Wednesday April 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. I actually have one piece hanging in the show, which is kind of bittersweet because it is my last student show at GSU.
And then from April 19 - 26 there will be a showing of art by the multi-talented Sharon Burrink, who does photography, sculpture, drawing, and is also an interior designer. The opening reception for her show, The Redemption of Brokenness, will be Friday, April 23 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Another show you definitely don't want to miss is taking place is Christopher Clark's aptly titled You Never Get a Second Chance. Chris has been involved in numerous artistic pursuits both on and off campus, including the Feed Art Center, which he recently co-founded with fellow artist and GSU alum Michael Costanza. Chris's show runs from May 17th through 24th, with a reception on Friday, May 21st from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
The regular gallery hours are Monday - Wednesday 11:00am - 4:00pm and Thursday 2:00pm - 7:00pm.
All three events are free and open to the public, so check them out. The school is located at 1 University Parkway in University Park, Illinois.
