The University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts Gallery presents “OVER/LOOK,” a mixed media exhibition of works by graduating seniors from the UIS Visual Arts Department. “OVER/LOOK” will open on Monday, April 25 and run through Thursday, May 12. A reception will be held in the UIS Visual Arts Gallery from 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, April 28. This event is free and open to the public.

In “OVER/LOOK,” emerging student artists consider ordinary things in life that are potentially overlooked or under-considered. They explore ways that inflexible expectations can hinder growth and outcomes that are better left to chance. Life is comprised of experiences - some good, some bad - and the works reflect this consideration. “OVER/LOOK” is an exhibition in which these artists acknowledge that one chapter is closing, while collectively looking forward to the future.

“OVER/LOOK” will feature artists Hasani Cannon, Taylor Parriott, Dustin Robertson, Samantha Wetter, Hannah Wilson and Tyler Wise. This groups exhibition will include a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, animation, installation and mixed media.

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.

The UIS Visual Arts Gallery is centrally located on the UIS campus in the Health and Science Building, room 201 (HSB 201). Gallery hours are 11. a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
