Jason Peot and Perry Pollock "Considerations"
Time: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: University Art Gallery
Description: Chicago area artists Jason Peot and Perry Pollock will have their two-person exhibition, "Considerations", on display February 20 through March 21 at the Western Illinois University Art Gallery.

A closing reception for the artists will be held Thursday, March 21, 4:30-6:00 p.m. The artists will speak about their work at 5:00 pm.

Jason Peot and Perry Pollock have been faculty colleagues for over twenty years in the Art and Design Department at Harper College in Palatine, IL—one of the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Peot oversees the design and sculpture curriculum and Pollock, the drawing and painting curriculum. Both artists work in a non-representational mode and emphasize meticulous attention to design and craft. There is an austerity and geometry that binds their work, but their conceptual intentions offer very different considerations.

The works in this exhibition are juxtaposed to highlight both artists' shared and contrasting approaches to art making. Pollock's minimalist objects are designed independent of their surroundings. In contrast, Peot's work directly references it's environment or location. The work in this two-person exhibition focuses on these similarities and differences to offer viewers a unique experience.
