Exhibition of Artwork by Tracie Cheng on Display in South Suburban College Dulgar Gallery

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL–The South Suburban College (SSC) Art & Design Department is presenting an exhibition of work by artist Tracie Cheng entitled “Pattern Recognition” in the Lee E. Dulgar Gallery on the first floor of the Main Campus. Her work is available for viewing from March 18 through April 18, 2024. A closing reception will be held on April 18 at 11:00 a.m.

Tracie Cheng is a Taiwanese American artist weaving lines and paint into dynamic visual dreamscapes. She very consciously observes life around her-absorbing stories and experiences-subconsciously watching as they unfold onto the canvas. Her work is meant to be a reflection of life’s textured complexities, giving voice to her ever-evolving relationship with faith, culture, ethnicity and narrative.

Tracie attended the University of Texas in Austin and graduated with a degree in architecture. After several years of architectural work, her desire to shape environments shifted to the visual arts. Her artistic style channels aspects of Chinese brush painting, abstraction, with some architectural sensibilities sprinkled throughout, continually shaped by the beauty and intricacies of the different cultures around her. Tracie finds joy navigating this artist life alongside her son and sculptor husband in Connecticut.

The public is welcome to visit the art exhibition and reception at no charge. The SSC Dulgar Gallery is open Monday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 – 9 p.m., Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. All SSC art galleries are closed on weekends and college holidays. For more information, contact Eric Tucker at (708) 596-2000, ext. 2300, or email etucker@ssc.edu. The SSC Main Campus is located at 15800 South State Street, South Holland, Illinois.
