Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Prairie State College (PSC) is hosting, “Memory: An exhibition of portraiture evoking memory,” in the Christopher Art Gallery on the main campus, located at 202 S. Halsted St. in Chicago Heights.

The exhibit opens Monday, Feb. 8, and features works from artists Ellen Holtzblatt, Judith Roth, John P. Smolko, Joseph Taylor and Julian Williams. There will be an artists’ reception from 4:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday Feb. 11 in the gallery. The exhibit closes Wednesday, March 9.

“The artists in ‘Memory’ have created portraits of various individuals in which the likeness of the sitter is less important than what the artist choses to reflect about his or her sitter in terms of mood, personality and the psychology of the sitter,” said gallery Director Beth Shadur, curator of the exhibit. “As viewers, we feel the intimacy of each moment portrayed, and feel privileged to be ‘allowed in’ to observe what may be a very private moment and the inner self of the sitter.”

The Christopher Art Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. Visits also can be made by appointment. For more information about the gallery, upcoming exhibits or to make an appointment for a visit, call (708) 709-7738 or visit prairiestate.edu/artgallery.
