JJC Juried Art Exhibition On Display Through June 29

The Joliet Junior College Fine Arts Department is proud to present the 2017 Area High School Art Exhibition from April 24 through June 29 in the Laura A. Sprague Gallery on Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.

This year’s exhibit features 111 works from 61 JJC students in mediums ranging from paintings, sculptures, photography, and other works of art.

In addition to the exhibit, a juror’s critique and presentation of awards will take place on Thursday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theatre. Jessica Segal, Assistant Fine Arts Director at North Central College, will present the juror’s critique. A reception, located in the Studio Arts area (ground floor of K-Building), will follow immediately after the critiques. The public is invited to attend these activities. The Juror’s Awards are provided by the Joliet Junior College Foundation, and were made possible thanks to contributions from John and Laura K
ingsbury.

The gallery is free and open to the public. The public viewing hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Beginning Monday, May 16, the gallery will start its summer hours and will be open Monday through Thursday.
