The public is invited to an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 1
The McHenry County College art exhibition, NEW HIRES, features the work of new adjunct faculty at the Satellite Gallery, located in the Old Courthouse Arts Center, 101 N. Johnson Street Woodstock, from Nov. 1, 2018 through Jan. 20, 2019.
An opening reception takes place from 5-7 p.m. on Nov. 1.
The Art Department at McHenry County College has a long and rich history of hiring artists who are also excellent educators. The combination of these two skills creates rare opportunities—both in the classroom and the professional gallery setting—for learning and enrichment.
The new adjunct faculty showcased in this exhibition all arrived to the MCC Art Department in 2018. College art instructors said the adjunct faculty are formidable forces in the classroom and professional artists outside the classroom.
NEW HIRES features the work of Sarah Dupre of DeKalb, Jeremy Foy of Geneva, Kat Liu and Caitlin Ryan, both of Chicago. Their artwork is varied and multiple approaches and points of view are displayed, including photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics.
This show is part of an ongoing series in the Satellite Gallery at the Old Woodstock Courthouse, in partnership with The Northwest Area Arts Council.
The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Matt Irie, MCC art department chairperson, at (815) 455-8552 or send him an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
