January 11 - February 16, 2020

Opening Reception: Sunday, January 19 from 1-4pm

The Evanston Art Center boasts over 90 accomplished artists as faculty members teaching in ten visual art departments. This January, we spotlight over 60 of our talented instructors in this biennial exhibition displaying the breadth and depth of our faculty's artistic abilities.

This exhibition is a visual testament to the dedication and professionalism of our faculty who both teach and maintain their own artistic practice. Every EAC department is represented including Art Seminars, Artistic Forms, Ceramics, Digital Media & Photography, Drawing & Painting, Figure Sculpture, Jewelry & Metalsmithing, Printmaking, Woodworking, and Youth Fine Art. Through their teaching and hands-on experience as practicing artists, they motivate and educate our youth and adult students to make time and space for creative expression. Join us in celebrating our tremendous EAC Faculty and their own works of art!
