- Joann Goetzinger: Sculptural Drawings will be on display August 18
through October 10 in the Joe McCauley Gallery, located in Room 2507
of the Instructional Commons Building (ICB) on Heartlandís Normal
campus, 1500 W. Raab Road. An artist talk will be held at 3:00 p.m.
Thursday, October 9 in ICB 2805 with a reception to follow from
4:00-5:30 p.m. in the gallery.
In her Sculptural Drawings series, Goetzinger combines two and
three-dimensional materials to imaginatively translate elements of
vocal music into a visual form. She uses aluminum and wood to sculpt
abstract, biomorphic forms and then adds colorful lines and shapes
with acrylic paint to increase their visual animation. Her works
actively engage interplay between positive shape and negative space,
both within the piece and against the gallery walls.
Exhibits, events, and parking at Heartlandís Joe McCauley Gallery
are free. Gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on days
the College is open. For more information about this exhibit,

Sciences Department at (309) 268-8620.
