'Three Ways to Get Here' to feature art and live music
CHAMPAIGN — The Indi Go Artist Co-op will present a three-person show, plus live music, during an opening reception Friday evening at the gallery, 9 E. University Ave.
"Three Ways to Get Here" also will feature two additional receptions, both featuring live music.
The art in the show:
— Paintings on glass by Phil Strang, manager of Foellinger Auditorium on the University of Illinois Quad.
— Photographs by Cecil Bilbo, a Parkland College faculty member in the Sprinkler System Technology Program and president of the nonprofit Academy of Fire Sprinkler Technology.
— Ceramics and watercolors by Sally Walsh, a Richland College faculty member.
Bilbo said Strang and Walsh chose a photograph of his to paint and display at the exhibition, but the rest of the show is broken down into the three artists' individual types of work.
The reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday will feature live music by John McMahon, and Bruiser and the Javalinas. Dublin O'Neils will supply food and drinks.
A "red, white and blue" reception will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. July 3, featuring red, white and blue food and drinks, plus live music by Cody and the Gateway Drugs. The closing reception from 6 to 9 p.m. July 6 will feature more food and drinks, plus live music by David Howie.
The gallery will be open for viewing from 2 to 9 p.m. every day from Friday through July 6, except July 4.
