Peggy Flavin: Closing Reception

Closing Reception for String Installation by Peggy Flavin 6-8pm Friday January 30th. 

Peggy Flavin is a mixed media artist and student at U of I. Generally, digital tools play a large role in geometric patterns- this installation instead relies on the organic formation of patterns that comes from the physical process of creating tension between strings.

Urbana is my home town and its been a wonderful year of working as an artist here and reconnecting to the local art's community. My work will be on display both in the lobby of the City of Urbana Building, and in the cafe area of the Urbana Public Library. The show includes images from my Micrometeorite Collector Experiment, and my newer Orion project.

Centum Cellulosa

Join us this Saturday for the Opening Reception of Centum Cellulosa; one hundred cellular drawings by artist Elizabeth Boyd Hartmann.

While formally a jeweler by training this collection of drawings is an important part of Hartmann’s studio practice and the drawings have led to another body of drawings and objects: Cellula Praecursoria. The body of work focusing on cellular forms was one of the artist’s ways of processing her husband’s journey through his diagnosis and recovery from bone cancer.

Art Exhibit: Intrigued at the IMC

The IMC Gallery is excited to collaborate with the Arts of Life to present a group show curated by artist Tim Stone, of the Chicago Studio. The Arts of Life is a studio based community for adults with developmental disabilities.

Intrigued reflects both the maker and viewer in their approach to artwork.  During the creative process, artists experience fascination, maybe even fixation, on a particular idea or image.  After hours of making and re-making, their idea becomes a reality of paper, paint, collage, and canvas.  Once completed, they often hope to share that feeling with viewers through their art; to inspire that same curiosity.  

Works selected for this show represent a wide variety of creative practices and styles.  Its makers are part of an artist collective that promotes the exchange of skills and concepts. The Arts of Life creates a space where the unique identity of each member is integrated and included in the whole.
