Fine Arts Faculty Biennial Exhibition at Joe McCauley Gallery

June 4, 2018

The creativity and craft of art instructors at Heartland Community College will be on display on the Normal campus this summer.

The 2018 Fine Arts Faculty Biennial Exhibition runs June 4 through August 24 in the Joe McCauley Gallery at Heartland Community College.

The exhibit celebrates the studio practice of faculty artists who teach fine arts courses at Heartland. Featured are works by Jane Camp, L.J. Douglas, Erin Furimsky, John Giglio, Megan Kathol Bersett, Marie-Susanne Langille, Lisa Lofgren, Michael “Mac” McAvoy, and Michele Peterson.

Ceramic sculptures, drawings, paintings, artist books, printmaking, and digital photography are featured, representing the diverse ideas and imagery these faculty artists explore.

“The works on display this summer are largely un-curated, meaning the artists themselves select the art,” says gallery coordinator Danell Dvorak. “The exhibition is a perfect opportunity for the public and our students to see the depth of talent found with the artists we have working as instructors at the College.”

A reception for the faculty artists will be held on Wednesday, August 22 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the gallery.

Exhibits, events, and parking at Heartland’s Joe McCauley Gallery are free. The gallery is located in room 2507 of the Instructional Commons Building on Heartland's Normal campus, 1500 W. Raab Road.

Summer hours:

Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on days the College is open (June 4 through August 10).

Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on days the College is open (August 13 through August 24).
