- 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
