The Clarke College Art Department will host “Millennium Milieu,” an exhibit of works by Kathryn Kucera from Friday, Sept. 12, through Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the Quigley Gallery on the Clarke campus. A reception for the exhibit will be held on Friday, Sept. 12 from 4-6 p.m. Admission to the exhibit and the reception are free and the public is invited to attend.
The exhibit by Kucera, who currently resides in the Chicago area, will feature a series of collages she created during her travels to Europe, Asia and South America. The pieces visualize her personal reactions to the locations and cultures of those varied locations.
“I hope to elicit ambivalence, tension and fears, the complexity of the accelerated pace of life today,” Kucera writes in her artist statement. Working with papers available wherever I find myself, I compile these arrangements of digital and paper images proliferating in our times. The ready medium seems suited to the immediate processing of my elusive perceptions, my fleeting impressions, and the ambiguities they imply.”
Kucera is an artist and teacher who regular exhibits throughout the Midwest. She holds a bachelor of science degree in related art from the College of Wisconsin and a master of fine arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Quigley Gallery is open Monday through Friday from noon-5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
