Art Professor's and Students' Work on Exhibition at Norris Center
NIU School of Art professor Charlotte Rollman and several of her graduate students will have their works on display at the Norris Cultural Arts Center in St. Charles. The exhibition is entitled Turn It On Its Side and opens Saturday, January 14, 2012.
Charlotte tells us, "Turn It On Its Side is a comment on my art critiquing style. When one looks so intensely at one's own art you can't see where the problems are.
"So, by looking at the art on it's side or even upside down, it becomes very clear and easily finished. The continuing advanced students are so used to me moving their art, it was an obvious choice for the title for our group exhibit. The quilt design is a great impression of our critiques by the quality and variety, something I take pride in as well."
The graduate students represented in the show are from the fall Hoffman Estates classes that Charlotte teaches under the auspices of NIU's College of Visual and Performing Arts external programs office. Michelle Price, art teacher at Wheeling and Buffalo Grove High Schools, designed the card that is, according to Charlotte, "so much fun to look at and to turn on it's side."
The exhibition runs through February 25, 2012, with a reception being held Sunday, February 12, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
