The public is invited for refreshments during an exhibit reception on Thursday, September 3rd from 5 to 7 pm with music by Matthew Watt and Matthew Hurt. At the artists’ reception, mingle with the art faculty and learn what has inspired their work.

Craig McMonigal, who will be retiring in January, will be giving a gallery talk about his work in the exhibition during the reception at 6:30 pm. Craig McMonigal, a Parkland instructor in photography, won the 2015 Illinois Community College Trustees Association Award for Outstanding Part-time Faculty Member. McMonigal is a 21-year faculty member who has been praised by colleagues for his commitment to the college, the program, and the students. One Art and Design colleague says McMonigal is “eager to accept new responsibilities, helping the Art and Design program, and the photography degree within the Communication program, to grow by actively supporting assessment and the development of new curriculum.” Described as an integral part of Parkland’s Art and Design program, McMonigal developed new courses in photography, implemented innovative techniques, and worked to help create the Associate in Applied Science in Photography program. McMonigal is an active member of the Society for Photographic Education and has served as the Parkland representative on the Illinois Higher Education Art Association.
