Evocative Art Exhibit Opens at PSC Christopher Art Gallery Jan. 7

To Dream Perchance to Awaken

Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Prairie State College Foundation is presenting the art exhibit “Evocative,” Jan. 7 through 30, in the Christopher Art Gallery on the Chicago Heights campus, located at 202 S. Halsted St. There will be an artists’ reception from 4:30 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 10.

This exhibition of sculpture, ceramics, paintings, photographs, prints, and mixed media works was chosen by juror Paul Klein of Klein Artist Works. Paul Klein has long been an art advocate and proponent for artists. In 2006, his long-term contributions were acknowledged by the Chicago Society of Artists when he was selected as their Man of the Year. Klein operated Paul Klein Gallery in Chicago and Seattle, and is the author of online Artletter.

Works were submitted by over 80 artists from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio. In choosing the 21 works from more than 270 submitted, Klein indicated, I looked for art work that fulfilled two qualities: first, that I got a sense of the artist, their purpose, and what they sought to communicate, and second, that the art evocated something within me that I thought the viewer of the show also might respond to.”

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. The gallery will be closed on Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. For more information about the exhibit or to make an appointment for a visit, contact the PSC Foundation at (708) 709-3636.
