From Jan. 11 to Feb. 26, the Wings Student Art Gallery, located in SSC 2210, will be hosting the College of DuPage Alumni Exhibition. The exhibit will be presenting the work of Alumni Larry King, Brenton Holiday and Jacqueline Withers.

 

Each of these artists took a different approach in expressing themselves. King created sculptures with unusual resources, like PVC pipe and discarded CD’s, to creates playful pieces influenced heavily by nature, as seen in the owls on display. Holiday’s work is more vivacious, utilizing vivid colors to portray his raw imagery of biblical events that create meaningful narratives which express his life experience and cultural background. Withers uses vivid colors and deep detail in her art by using experimental paint applications and forms to create a dynamic appearance that stands out.

 

This display was curated in conjunction with the COD Center for Diversity and Inclusion as part of the campus wide celebration of Black History Month.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and a reception with the artists on Thursday, Feb. 11, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., will be open to the public.
