SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College (SSC) is pleased to present a new exhibition located in the Dulgar Gallery on SSC’s Main Campus in South Holland. This exhibition of art works by Jeff Stevenson titled “Magnetic Line of Force” is on display September 12 to October 20, 2016. There will be an Artist’s Gallery Talk with remarks by Stevenson on September 27 at 1:00 p.m.
“Magnetic Line of Force,” a title taken from one of the pieces in the show, is “an imaginary concept that provides a very useful way to not only represent but also to define the properties of the magnetic field being evaluated, says Stevenson. “Using imaginary concepts to explore things that are unseen could describe my art making process and also much of our interactions as humans in this magical world.” This exhibition features my “Exquisite Corpse” inspired large scale scroll works on paper from 2012, other works on canvas and paper from 2014, and two from my most recent series of cut and combined paintings of found selfies from 2016.
Jeff Stevenson is an award winning artist who has been honored with an Artist’s Residency at Ragdale, a solo exhibition at the Union League Club of Chicago, the “Patron Award” by artist Philip Pearlstein at the Northern National Competition, the “Curator’s Choice Award” at the Chicago Art Open, the “Figurative Award” at the Beverly Arts Center and others.
As an art educator, Jeff Stevenson has taught college level studio art, art history, and creativity classes. Stevenson has been invited as guest lecturer and panelist for university classes, campus programs, and national conferences. He also has served on boards and committees with the Chicago Artists’ Coalition, Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park, Flossmoor Village Art Commission, and occasionally writes for examiner.com as the Chicago Museum Examiner.
