For Immediate Release
University Park, IL, February 18, 2010 - Governors State University (GSU) and the South Suburban Collaborative Arts Guild (CAG) are joining forces to present “Art on Campus.” The exhibit, featuring the paintings, photography, and poetry of seven members of the CAG, runs through March 31 in the GSU main entrance Atrium Gallery and the Upstairs Gallery at The Center for the Performing Arts.
The exhibit represents the diverse artistic styles of the participating artists and includes abstract, representational nature and landscape paintings, digital photography, and mixed media collage. The colorful range of work was organized by Michéle P. Owens and curated by Jeff Stevenson. A number of CAG members have been students in GSU’s art program.
The Collaborative Arts Guild is part of Union Street Gallery, Chicago Heights, Illinois and provides area artists a platform to develop their creativity, exhibit their art, and conduct business as professional artists.
The purpose of the “Art on Campus” program is to enhance campus life for students, staff, and visitors. Community collaborations, such as this one with CAG and Union Street Gallery, are integral to the program.
Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois. For more information, call (773) 398-5765.
