News Archives

Here you will find links to both current news items and also archived events, relating to both me and my students. Since documentation is important to the artist, I wish to create an easily accessible area that displays all my internet news releases on one page of links. This is a work in progress, so forgive the lack of content in my early stages of building this site.



Four Directions Four s

SCHOENHERR GALLERY North Central College, Naperville, IL August 12 through September 18, 2011 The art featured in "4 Directions/ 4 s" unifies four master s from four corners of the United States. Robert Kennon hails from Missouri, Kent Kapplinger from North Dakota, Catherine Chauvin from Colorado and Ralph Slatton from Tennessee. Each artist has contributed their time, talent and unique experiences to create a collection of prints using etching, engraving, lithography and silkscreening techniques. Their prints, which are influenced by realism, abstraction, surrealism and romanticism, range in subject as widely as their home states do in distance, featuring everything from rock formations to machinery and from animals to landscapes. The exhibit in Schoenherr Gallery is open to the public. Schoenherr Gallery is located at the Fine Art Center, 171 E Chicago Ave., and is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays, and will be open one hour before most performances in the Fine Arts Center.
