Indoor exhibit runs through June 29th
Outdoor exhibit runs through October 20th
This year Fine Line Creative Arts Center, 37w570 Bolcum Rd, St. Charles has combined its indoor and outdoor spaces into one incredible gallery exhibit. Titled “Sculpture,” the show brings together local and national artists to showcase all things sculptural.
Fine Line first hosted an outdoor sculpture exhibit in 2017 and has chosen to host one every other year. The outdoor show consists of works by seven artists, both local and out-of-state, whose pieces will be on display around the Fine Line campus until the end of October.
The indoor exhibit shows pieces by thirty artists, and while, as expected, many are local, there are a large number of pieces from other states. In fact, ten states including Illinois are represented by the exhibit. The exhibit is a beautiful mix of artists views with many whimsical pieces included. One of the local artists taking part is Connie Oberta from West Chicago.
Connie describes herself as a story teller. Each of her pieces tell the story of a person that she has known; an ancestor; a historical person or one imaged based on our culture and the society of today’s world. Her piece titled “Girlfriend Listen to Me”, which represents the #MeToo movement was given an Award of Merit.
This exhibit is an incredibly diverse group of sculptural pieces and certainly worth seeing in person.
Fine Line is Open to the Public Monday – Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm.
