Summer Art Exhibition at the Contemporary Art Center

Chris Kahler & Jerry Monteith: Critical Mass
July 13 – August 24 Preston Jackson Gallery

William Butler pairs two Illinois educators, Chris Kahler of Eastern Illinois University and Jerry Monteith of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. The genesis of Kahler’s unruly compositions could be a petri dish, showing protean birth and growth. Monteith’s bizarre sculptures could be the result of what was hatched in the lab and escaped. Together they tell a story of our natural world under attack and the response to the onslaught with resolve, humor and beauty.
