Carthage Art Exhibit: At Home

March 12, 2018 – April 20, 2018

Mon-Fri: 12 - 5 p.m., Thurs. 6 - 8 p.m., Sat. 1 - 4 p.m.

Admission to the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art's exhibition "At Home" is free, and the public is welcome. The gallery is located on the campus of Carthage College.

Featuring works from Chicago-based artists Gwendolyn Zabicki and Ann Toebbe, "At Home" is a collection of images reciting the daily tedium of chores and household activities. The exhibition is a reflection on social and anthropological constructs of our domiciliary spaces.

Zabicki’s works incorporate a subtle wryness, reflecting upon the systemic congruency between cleaning a mirror and painting an image of that same act. Toebbe, who focuses on deceptively flat paintings, drawings, and collages, conflates complex compositional spaces from experience and memories of domestic settings.

Special events planned during the exhibition include:

  • Opening reception:  4:30 to 7:30  p.m. March 15
  • Artist lecture:  5  p.m. March 19
