This exhibition includes nine contemporary artists who explore and create imagery as a way to investigate their ideas. Using a variety of methods such as historical research, mapping, found imagery, and landscape, they examine our relationship with complex imagery as it relates to the personal, the collective, and the unknown.

Exhibit participants comprise artists and faculty from the US including Paul Flippen, associate professor at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Co.; Adriane Little, associate professor of photography and intermedia at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich.; Collaborative artists Casey McGuire and Mark Schoon, both associate professors at University of West Georgia, Carrollton, Ga.; and Thom Sawyer, a studio artist who spends his time in both New Mexico and Washington State. The four artists residing in Illinois include Peg Shaw, associate professor of art and design at Parkland College in Champaign; Chicago-based studio artist Michael Thompson; and Hale Ekinci, Associate Professor of art and design, and Whitney Sage, Assistant Professor of art and design, who are both faculty at North Central College in Naperville.

Three additional artist lectures will be given by Hale Ekinci, Whitney Sage, and Peg Shaw. These presentations are free open to the public.
