Illinois is home to the second largest concentration of artists in the country. The fifty-seven works in Our Corner of the World represent a small sampling of the best visual art being produced statewide. Sharing a common environment does not necessarily mean sharing a collective aesthetic. These seventeen artists work in a range of media including collage, painting, photography, drawing, and sculpture. The subjects and concepts of the artworks are widely varied as well, ranging from Rosalyn Schwartz’ alien landscapes to David Hodges’ obscure narrative paintings to Wendy Jacob’s “breathing” sculpture.
