This recursive process can manifest itself in the formal and conceptual qualities of the artwork itself, producing works that embody, parallel and explore the patterns of artistic perception and creation.
NIU’s Jack Olson Gallery will explore those themes this spring with “Pattern Recognition,” an exhibition open from Friday, Jan. 22, through Thursday, March 3. An opening reception is planned from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21; Jon Satrom’s video performance is scheduled for 5 p.m.
Curated by Nina Rizzo and Steven Ciampaglia, the exhibition also showcases Samantha Bittman’s pattern textiles; installations by Lindsey French and Kelly Kaczynski; Steve Germana’s digital music composition; Mike Glier’s abstract landscape paintings on aluminum panel; and William J. O’Brien’s geometric pencil drawings.
Located in Room 200 of the Visual Arts Building, the gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to noon Friday during the academic year. For more information, call (815) 753-4521 or email JackOlsonGallery@gmail.com.
