Intrigued at the IMC: Closing Reception

Friday, August 28, 2015
Urbana Champaign Independent Media Center, 202 S. Broadway, Urbana IL 61801

The IMC Gallery is excited to collaborate with the Arts of Life to present a group show curated by artist Tim Stone, of the Chicago Studio. The Arts of Life is a studio based community for adults with developmental disabilities.

Intrigued reflects both the maker and viewer in their approach to artwork. During the creative process, artists experience fascination, maybe even fixation, on a particular idea or image. After hours of making and re-making, their idea becomes a reality of paper, paint, collage, and canvas. Once completed, they often hope to share that feeling with viewers through their art; to inspire that same curiosity.

Works selected for this show represent a wide variety of creative practices and styles. Its makers are part of an artist collective that promotes the exchange of skills and concepts. The Arts of Life creates a space where the unique identity of each member is integrated and included in the whole.

Speaking from diverse creative and personal perspectives, Intrigued aspires to captivate and connect with viewers on many levels.

Closing Reception with the artists:
Friday, August 28th 5-7pm Air Max 200
