Art Exhibitions on Display at South Suburban College


SOUTH HOLLAND, IL–The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College (SSC) is pleased to present a new exhibition titled Trail to Arcadia on display August 25th through September 17th. Trail to Arcadia is the show’s title piece and the exhibition of watercolor paintings from Chicago-based artist Anna Zanic on display in the Lee E. Dulgar Gallery at the South Holland Campus August 18th through September 15, 2014.

Zanic was born in Vinkovci, Croatia in 1976. She earned her Master’s of Fine Arts from at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 2002. In this body of work, the abstracted notion of atmospheric landscape is a metaphorical expression of life’s mysterious and elusive path. Works are built with layers of watercolor washes, intermixed with dynamic lines, scribbles and marks of ink drawing. There is a quiet tension between the watercolor’s fluidity, softness and calm, vs. the dynamic, rhythm and energy of drawing.

Trail to Arcadia joins another exhibition at SSC already on display in the Dorothea Thiel Gallery titled Welcome to Earth. Welcome to Earth is select body of ceramic sculptures from artist Matthew Groves that display through September 15th. Welcome to Earth is both figurative and narrative, reflecting Groves’ unique point of view, and demonstrating his passion for craft and traditional forms.

The public is welcome to visit art exhibitions and receptions at no charge. The Dulgar Gallery is located on the 1st Floor near the Atrium and the Thiel Gallery is on the 4th floor in the Art & Design hallway. SSC Galleries are open at minimum Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The galleries are closed on weekends and holidays.
