A group of accomplished art teachers set out to dispel a common myth about the abilities of teachers with their show. The artwork, from Champaign Unit 4 School District Art Teachers, represents the diverse talents of its faculty, working in a range of media. These artists/teachers prove that they CAN with their creative, inspirational and thoughtful works of art.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Works by community artists will once again feature in a summer juried art exhibition at Giertz Gallery at Parkland College.

Giertz Gallery, in collaboration with 40 North: Champaign County Arts Council, presents “Around the Block II: Artists from Our Neighborhood” opening Monday, June 19. The exhibit, which runs through Aug. 9, comprises works of art that reflect the caliber of creative flourish that is present in east central Illinois.

Serving as juror for the exhibition is Gisele Atterberry, art history faculty in the Fine Arts Department at Joliet Junior College and coauthor of the college textbook Design Essentials: A Handbook. She will provide opening remarks at the June 22 exhibit reception, to be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery. Atterberry also will give a closing gallery talk on the show Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 6 p.m.

Gallery Director Lisa Costello called this year’s exhibit a terrific survey of artists who live in the area.

“We’re pleased by the strong turnout of artists who submitted their work for the exhibit,” she remarked. “We’re also very pleased to have Gisele Atterberry agree to be our juror; a longtime resident of Champaign, she has made an impact in the arts in Illinois. She took this responsibility very seriously and gave a lot of thought to her selection. Finally, we’re thankful for 40 North, Champaign County’s Art Council, which really helped us get the word out to local artists to submit their work! It’s a valuable resource to our community.”

More than 70 artists are participating in this exhibit: Jan Adams, Cecilia Allen and Roger Blakley, Sylvia Arnstein, Tedra Ashley-Wannemuehler, Jenny Barrett, Sandra Batzli, Gary Beaumont, Jess Beyler, Jodi Birdwell, Harry Breen, Thomas Brewer, M.

Atterberry expressed on her own “great pleasure” in jurying the Giertz Gallery’s second community art exhibition.

“I was constantly reminded of the artistic vitality evident throughout our area,” she commented. “I was delighted to see submissions from veteran artists, people who have long played a prominent and valuable role in our arts community. Additionally, there were many highly skilled and thematically compelling works that were totally new to my eyes. In all, I feel the show will offer a reflection of the exciting and diverse range of interests held by artists just ‘around the block.’”
