Two exhibits will be opening at Time Gallery in Fondulac Bank with an opening reception Saturday morning, January 19, from 10 am to noon. “ExIconoclast: ReMaking Myth” is an exhibit by Torri Thompson of assemblage art with found objects that connect with mythologies and classic literature. Thompson and Kim Toohill havephotography exhibits emphasizing the Mackinaw River and rural America.
Thompson is a former English professor at Illinois State University where she taught courses in classic mythology, Shakespeare and Bible as literature. Her art assemblages are fusions of these texts and images recreated from found objects. Living in in rural McLean County, Thompson retrofitted her garage into “The Art Shop,” which is stocked with objects that inspire ideas and serve as art materials.
Toohill’s interest in photography began when she trained as a photographer’s mate in the Navy. Her recent work evolves from documenting the lives of her children and friends as well as Illinois wildlife and rural architecture. She also photographs birds, particularly in Illinois, New Mexico, Kansas and Texas.
The exhibits will be open through March 30, 2019 with a reception on Saturday, February 2 from 10am-noon.
