White on White~Midwest Collage Society Jan 2008

Artwork on post card by Artist: Mary Yezek

EVENT: Midwest Collage Society members to exhibit at Union Street Gallery in exhibit entitled "white on white"

DATES OF EXHIBIT; January 11th - February 8, 2008
Opening Reception: Friday, January 11th, 6:00-9:00 pm

LOCATION: Union Street Gallery
1527 Otto Blvd.
Chicago Heights, IL 60411

Members of the Midwest Collage Society will be showing their "true colors" as artists as they have taken on the challenge to create an art piece using only the color white. Of course, being a collage society, the members have experience in crating with all sorts of textures, shapes, materials and techniques. The show should prove to be very interesting, creative and very, very white, which should fit in with the chicagoland winter forecast.
