Closing Reception for String Installation by Peggy Flavin 6-8pm Friday January 30th.
Peggy Flavin is a mixed media artist and student at U of I. Generally, digital tools play a large role in geometric patterns- this installation instead relies on the organic formation of patterns that comes from the physical process of creating tension between strings.

Join us this Saturday for the Opening Reception of Centum Cellulosa; one hundred cellular drawings by artist Elizabeth Boyd Hartmann.
While formally a jeweler by training this collection of drawings is an important part of Hartmann’s studio practice and the drawings have led to another body of drawings and objects: Cellula Praecursoria. The body of work focusing on cellular forms was one of the artist’s ways of processing her husband’s journey through his diagnosis and recovery from bone cancer.
See more of her work here on her website: http://www.elizabethboydhartmann.com/

This is a series dedicated to my hometown, Changping, usually called the garden of Beijing; a suburb of eighteen districts. During the summer 2013, I went along the Changping metro line tracks. As proof of the compelling ambition and overwhelming speed of the development of the country, Changping metro line took only one year to complete, and became the fourteenth line in Beijing.
China has recently exhibited a resurrection of the industrial revolution. A booming capitalist economy has shaken the old system of wealth, as rapid technological developments cannot wait to replace traditional living habits and the decline of ethical standards tolls the death of parting days. My series is not meant to be simply an elegy for a loss of naturalism in modern society. China’s changes are even more fundamental and drastic. Socialism and its countless variations leave this land with an undeniable legacy, and an unbearable spiritual debt. However, this series is not merely a judgment of a certain scheme that tries to benefit the people but ultimately results in the exact opposite. It’s an epitome and allegory for the dilemma of the country.
