ALTON — The Jacoby Arts Center will play host to 10 Midwestern painters and their exhibit “Of Color and Rhythm” from Sept. 6 to Oct. 11. Painters from Illinois, Missouri and Ohio create works that are diverse in style and subject matter.
Light provides the rhythm and energy for works that offer a mix of abstract imagery and sharp-focus realism.
Many of the exhibitors also teach art at a variety of institutions. Artists include Lynnette Lombard, Tina Engels, Timothy King and Megan Williamson of Illinois; Bob Brock, Amy MacLennan and Michael Neary of Missouri; Glen Cebulash, Deborah Chlebek and Jeremy Long of Ohio.
On the contemporary art scene, the Midwest Paint Group is best known for its efforts to modernize the age-old genres of landscape, still life and figure painting with 20th-century modernist constructs. More information regarding the organization may be found on www.midwest-paint-group-org.
The public is invited to meet the artists and enjoy an opening reception on Saturday from 6 to 9 at JAC, 627 E. Broadway, Alton. For information, contact the center at (618) 462-5222 or www.jacobyartscenter.org.
