What's on right now in the Gallery?

May - June 2017:
The works of Veronica Sebastian Potter

A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, Potter has taken additional classes at Harper College and the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She has also attended various workshops in Canada, France, and the United States.

Basically a printmaker, Potter utilizes the techniques of etching, engraving, wood cuts, and the aquatint technique in etchings. Her other main interests are watercolor, collage, and more recently, icon creation. A retired adjunct faculty member of Harper College, her teaching experience includes oil painting, watercolor, monotypes, mixed media, papermaking, silk painting, drawing, and encaustic painting. She has also taught many classes at the Arlington Heights Senior Center.

Potter has been in many art fairs and exhibits over the past 25 years, and a member of many prominent art guilds and societies. See a price list of Veronica Sebastian Potter's works currently on display at the library.



Atrium Art Installation - now through mid-2017

Minnesota-based, internationally known artist HOTTEA describes his work as “interacting with public spaces non-destructively.” HOTTEA, whose full name is Eric Rieger, has created an original work of art, "Elaine," commissioned by the Library for its beautiful atrium. The work may be viewed during the Library's regular hours.

Rieger's work has been seen on the streets of Chicago and Minneapolis-Saint Paul, on the stages of New York Fashion Week, at musical experiences like the Eaux Claires Festival and a series of concerts by Bon Iver at the Sydney Opera House, and on the sands of Ala Moana Beach in Honolulu. He has even appeared on Sesame Street and worked at Paisley Park to honor the passing of Prince. His work will be on display at the Barrington Area Library through summer 2017.
