Artist John Stanicek’s works to be displayed at SXU Gallery

Ceramic sculpture and graphite drawings from March 10 through April 5

news story imageChicago (March 1, 2011) The works of graphic artist/illustrator John Stanicek will be displayed from Thurs., March 10 to Tues., April 5 at Saint Xavier University's SXU Gallery, located in the Chicago Campus' Warde Academic Center, 3700 W. 103rd St.

Stanicek will give a lecture about the exhibit, titled "Drawn to Clay," at a reception at 3:30 p.m., Thurs., March 10 in the gallery. Stanicek said the exhibit is inspired by machines and their components.

“Every day of this modern life we are exposed to machines and mechanical things. Still, we seldom consider our encounter with these objects significant even though they do the work, provide the work, or save on the work of our daily routine,” said Stanicek. “Their presence and influence are often overlooked. We love them and we hate them, yet this relationship is ever present.”

Stanicek is a graphic artist/illustrator from Aurora and works as a Studio Artist in ceramics at Waubonsee Community College. His work has been displayed throughout Illinois since 2003.

The Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, please contact the Gallery at (773) 298-3081.
