New art professor to show work
September 3, 2013
Springfield artist and MacMurray adjunct professor of Art Megan Rigoni-McCormic will display her works in the inaugural exhibition of the Applebee Gallery’s 2013-14 season.
The show, good job/congrats/you did it, will have an opening reception Thursday, Sept. 5 beginning at 6 p.m., with an artist’s talk at 6:15 p.m. in the gallery, which is located in the Putnam-Springer Center at the southeast corner of Clay and State streets on the MacMurray College campus in Jacksonville.
Ms. Rigoni-McCormic’s work investigates formal beauty and contemporary taste. (A detail from “Untitled Award Ribbons” is pictured.) Her work attempts to walk the line between various dichotomies, attempting to find the line between opposites. Her current work explores the concept of congratulation and celebration through constructing award totems for unknown persons.
The show continues until Sept. 25. The Applebee Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment at 479-7092 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, see http://www.mac.edu/applebee_gallery/current.asp.
