"Venus," mixed-media paintings
Charlotte Segal travels with an eye to local color, history, and the dominant art treasurers of regions visited. In October 2005, Segal spent considerable time in Paris studying her favorite works of art, especially the sculpture "Venue d'Milo," a long time resident of the Louvre. "Venus" is the inspiration and theme of Segal's latest mixed-media paintings. In addition, Segal, with collaborator and printer, Peter Jones, has taken Venus from her pedestal and repositioned her via digital processes, leaving the Louvre behind. A member of ARC Gallery, Segal also is on the faculty of the International Academy of Design and Technology, Chicago Campus. Her paintings are in many major collections. Her focus on the female form has been a recurring theme.

Trinity Christian College Seniors...........Galleries D, E & Special Events
5/2/2006 to 6/3/2006
The work in this show is the culmination of four or more years of undergraduate study for each of the artists. They deal with a variety of issues, media, and artistic goals. While individual and distinct, each artist has been acutely aware of the work of the other artists in the show. The show is a product of a community of artists, rather than just a showcase of varied work.
Participating artists: Josh Biesboer, Ryan Bruxvoort, Jenni Derks, Jordan Hoekstra, Esther Holwerda, Stacy E. Hunley, Kristi Kendrix, Nettie Kossart, Sam McCune, Kayla Ruggles and Jenny Rynberk.
