Arkansas artist, Craig Colorusso, along with Chicago artist, Renee McGinnis. Colorusso’s installations Light + Sound features Cubemusic, consisting of four foot, internally lit cubes creating a cascade of light and shadow that will project around the gallery from floor to ceiling. Also featured are Colorusso’s Sun Boxes, and outdoor installation comprised of twenty speakers, individually operated by solar panels to play a looped guitar note which collectively create a Bb chord. Be sure to catch these boxes as they travel around to various public spaces in Quincy to provide a relaxed and meditative outdoor environment for all to enjoy. For a list of dates and participating venues visit quincyartcenter.org. McGinnis’ exhibit, The Garden of Mega-Structures, features large scale and miniature paintings depicting beautiful sky’s and sceneries that house aging and decrepitating “mega-structures” such as ships and metal buildings. Her paintings have been described as surrealism rooted in Renaissance which can be seen in her photo-realist painting style.
These exhibitions has been generously underwritten by Quincy Medical Group, Quincy Audiology, Blessing Health Services, Michelmann Steel Construction Company, and Mid-States Door & Hardware.
