Teaching artist McCulloch to be featured at KCC exhibit
Finding fulfillment in a balance between practice and instruction, Cissna Park artist and teacher Gale McCullough will show her work at Kankakee Community College, with a 6:30-8 p.m. opening reception on Sept. 22.
The public is invited to join the artist and faculty in KCC’s Arts & Sciences Gallery Room R103 for the free reception. McCullough’s dreamy, lyrical paintings will be on display from Sept. 20 through Oct. 14.
“We are excited to present paintings by Gale McCullough, a retired teacher who shared her love of art with so many students over the years and now has the opportunity to make art full time!” KCC art professor Jean Janssen said. “Gale’s work is insightful, energetic and full of expressionistic color. These paintings offer a very personal interpretation of nature through Gale’s eyes.”
Titled “Magic, Mystery and Rilke”, the exhibit is sponsored by KCC’s Visual Arts department.
“I've been a close friend of KCC since coming to Cissna Park some 36 years ago to teach [K-12],” McCullough said. “I have been an … artist who teaches art. One without the other would leave me unfulfilled as a person. Thus the warm feeling I have when I reflect on the past three and a half decades of my life.”
KCC is located south of downtown Kankakee, near U.S. 45-52, off River Road. Contact Janssen at 815-802-8719 for more information.
