EVANSTON ART CENTER ANNOUNCES BIENNIAL FACULTY EXHIBITION

EAC is proud to welcome the community to view the faculty’s talent at our Biennial Faculty Exhibition opening on January 25, 2015

EXHIBITION: Evanston Art Center Faculty DATES: January 25 – February 22, 2015 OPENING: Sunday, January 25, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

GALLERY HOURS: 10 AM – 9PM, Monday – Thursday; 10 AM – 4PM, Friday & Saturday; 1 PM – 4 PM, Sunday

The Evanston Art Center is delighted to welcome the public to the Biennial Faculty Exhibition. From January 25 to February 22, 2015, the Evanston Art Center will showcase its faculty’s newest work in ceramics, digital arts, drawing, painting, fiber, figure sculpture, jewelry, metal sculpture, mosaics, photography, and printmaking. All works will be exhibited in the Art Center’s galleries and are free and open to the public.

There will also be an Opening Reception, Sunday, January 25, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The exhibition will demonstrate the wide talents of over 60 Art Center faculty members. The Evanston Art Center’s faculty consists of talented teaching artists with MFA degrees from some of the most prestigious arts schools, including Columbia College, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Kansas City Art Institute, and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, France. Dozens of the EAC staff are local Illinois based artists, and their time with the Art Center provides them with a supplementary but reliable source of income that allows them to network with peers as they pursue their individual art.

The Evanston Art Center, a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization, is dedicated to fostering the appreciation and expression of the arts among diverse audiences. The Art Center offers extensive and innovative instruction in broad areas of artistic endeavor through classes, exhibition, interactive arts activities, and community outreach initiatives.

The Evanston Art Center is located at 2603 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL Evanston Art Center Gallery Hours: Mon. – Thurs. 10 am – 9 pm; Fri. – Sat. 10 am – 4 pm; Sun. 1 – 4 pm.

First floor galleries are handicapped accessible. Limited free parking is available. For more information please visit us online at www.evanstonartcenter.org or contact Paula Danoff, Director of Communications, at (847) 475-5300 ext. 206.

Musical Insights: German Favorites (1:30 pm - 2:30 pm)

Enhance your concert experience with music education like you’ve never experienced before. Friday afternoon before each concert, generally at 1:30 pm, ESO General Manager David Ellis and Maestro Lawrence Eckerling present an exciting concert preview.

Frequently the guest soloist for Sunday’s concert also participates. They provide a wealth of information about the composers and their works. You might learn about the trials and tribulations that challenged a composer, and what inspired his musical genius. You may learn about the structure of a symphony or concerto, outline its musical themes and motifs, and relate the work and its composer to works that precede and follow it. Maestro Eckerling adds a very personal commentary, perhaps explaining how he is interpreting a work at Sunday’s concert, or the relationship among the different pieces in the program.

A patron attending Musical Insights likened them to a well-balanced team of sports announcers, with Maestro Eckerling as the color commentator. She commented, “What a delightful Friday afternoon! I learned so much about the music, and I enjoyed Sunday’s concert so much more because I heard so much more when listening with an educated ear.”

Musical Insights and complimentary refreshments will take place at The Merion, 1611 Chicago Ave.
