Chicago artist, draftsman featured at Rockford College Feb. 2-March 3
Rockford College will host an exhibition by Chicago-based artist and avid draftsman Don Colley Feb. 2-March 3 in the Art Gallery at Clark Arts Center.
An opening reception for the exhibition, which is titled “Rearviewed,” will be from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 2. A discussion with the artist will begin at 10 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 2, in the Printmaking Studio in the Clark Arts Center.
Colley reveals his awe-inspiring and mind-bending world in this exhibition of paintings, prints, ceramic tiles, personal sketchbooks and a compelling wall installation of drawings.
Lori Waxman, Chicago free-lance art critic, said the artist’s depiction of “… evil clowns, brawling boxcar hobos and flamboyant carnie types are intensely cinematic. They’re sinister and alluring, able to suggest entire storylines within a single drawing.”
The Art Gallery is open 3-6 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and by appointment. Admission is free and open to the public. Clark Arts Center is accessible.
For more information, contact the Rockford College Box Office at (815) 226-4100. To learn more about Colley, visit http://buttnekkiddoodles.com/about-2/.
