UIS Visual Arts program to host artists lecture

April 24, 2007

Contact: Brian Gillis, 217/206-7548, bgill3@uis.edu

SPRINGFIELD -- Jessica Bader and Christine Rabenold will deliver a Visiting Artists Lecture beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 26, in room 150 of the Visual and Performing Arts Building at the University of Illinois at Springfield. The program is free and open to the public.

The subject will be "Anglewood Farm: Paris, Illinois," a collaborative project currently on display at North Central College in Naperville.

Bader is coordinator of ceramics and sculpture at Harold Washington College in Chicago. Rabenold is assistant professor of art at North Central.

Anglewood Farm is located in a rural area near the state's eastern border. In their project, Bader and Rabenold combine porcelain sculpture with artifacts from the farm in an attempt to symbolize its historical culture and activities over time.

Rabenold noted that porcelain was used in the exhibit because of the domestic and commemorative qualities it evokes. "It became a vehicle to visually map the succession of agriculture and the history of Anglewood Farm," she said.

The presentation is sponsored by UIS' Visual Arts Program. The Visual and Performing Arts Building is located on the east side of campus.

For more information, contact Brian Gillis, assistant professor of Visual Arts, by phone at 206-7548 or by e-mail at bgill3@uis.edu.
