Art exhibit opens at Rockford College Oct. 8
From press release
Artist Sara Schneckloth deals with imagined microbiological systems in her work. She envisions cells, organs, fluids and tissues, and tries to assemble those elements into a new structure.
Schneckloth will bring this unique style of art to the Rockford College Art Gallery as part of a free exhibition titled “Currents and Flows,” Oct. 8-Nov. 7. An artist’s reception with appetizers and refreshments will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Oct. 8, at the gallery.
Currently residing in South Carolina, where she teaches at the University of South Carolina, Schneckloth works in a variety of media and looks for ways to take drawing beyond its traditional definition as “marks on paper.”
As a special interactive treat for exhibit visitors, she will be coordinating a 9-foot-by-12-foot collaborative drawing that starts with a basic compositional structure with indelible white marks on black paper. Students and gallery visitors are invited to contribute their marks to the piece in layers of color and material.
Art gallery hours are 2-6 p.m., Tuesday; 3-6 p.m., Wednesday; noon-3 p.m., Thursday; 3-6 p.m., Friday; 3-6 p.m., Saturday.
The gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays. Admission is always free.
