The Indiana University Northwest Gallery for Contemporary Art in the Savannah Center at the university will be the site of an Illiana Artists members juried exhibit.
This exhibit is featured through July 16 during regular gallery hours. An artist's reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcome.
This exhibit will include the works of local Indiana and Illinois artists and will feature a wide range of media. Included will be oils, acrylics, mixed media, pastels and watercolors. Original prints, including serigraphs, will be represented.
Three-dimensional works and sculpture in various media will be shown, and the artistic styles represented vary as much as the media. Works range from representational to abstract, and subject matter is a panorama spanning everything from landscape and figurative to expressionist themes.
