January 13, 2012
JACKSONVILLE, IL – Joint works by Alison Ouellette-Kirby and Noah Kirby will continue the Applebee Art Gallery season this spring at MacMurray College. The show, “Things Unsaid, opens Thursday, Jan. 19 with a reception 6-8 p.m. at the Putnam/Springer Building, located at the corner of State and Clay streets on the MacMurray College campus. The gallery talk will be at 6:15 p.m.
The works hold a dialog as the artists express similar things in different languages, the artists say. The work questions what it means to have a voice within a larger context and to what extent that voice can be heard.
