New Art Exhibitions coming to South Suburban College
The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College (SSC) is pleased to present two exhibitions in galleries on the college’s Main Campus in South Holland.
First, Mark Holmes is exhibiting “Moves and Measures” through Tuesday, November 19 in the Lee E. Dulgar Gallery with a closing reception on November 19 at 1 p.m. “Moves and Measures” features 18 objects that represent four bodies of work. Holmes explores similar visual themes through the distinct groups, giving the viewer insight into his sculptural oeuvre. He constructs different spaces with color, surface, planes and edges that invite the audience to witness perceptual ambiguities colliding with tactile realities. Mark Holmes holds a BA from Hope College, and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University. He currently chairs the Department of Art and Art History at Knox College, where he has taught since 2004.
A second exhibition of oil paintings by emerging artist George Peterson titled “Mode In Medium” is on display in the Dorothea Theil Gallery through November 14, 2013. The exhibition will feature selected paintings executed before, during, and after his time in graduate school. Peterson received his MFA in painting at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, Boston, MA. He has worked under established artists such as Angela Dufresne, Tony Apesos, and Joe Wardwell. Peterson has exhibited with artists such as Eric Finzi, Annette Wehrhahn and Eliza Burke Greene.
