Spring Art Exhibition to Feature ‘Margaret Lanterman: Sculpture’

March 1, 2018 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

Due to Spring Break (March 19-23), the Barbara A. Kieft Accelerator ArtSpace will be closed from Tuesday, March 20 to Thursday, March 22.

Normal hours will resume the following week which are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Margaret Lanterman is an artist and art educator who explores the interface between nature and culture in sculptural and two-dimensional works.

Originally educated as an ethologist, Lanterman’s study of animal behavior spurred her life-long artistic journey, which has resulted in works in various media from found objects to cast plaster to wood.

Three distinct bodies of Lanterman’s work from different time periods—staff sculptures, hand portraits (workers) and “mind games”—will be displayed when Elmhurst College hosts “Margaret Lanterman: Sculpture” from March 6 through April 14 in the Barbara A. Kieft Accelerator ArtSpace. A public reception for the artist will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7. An Artist’s Talk will take place at 5:00 p.m. Admission is free to the exhibition and reception, and the public is invited.

“These beautifully crafted objects and sculptural works reflect a very personal vision about the way art reflects the flow of humanity,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibits for the College.

This exhibition is one of about a dozen art shows that Elmhurst College hosts each academic year in two campus venues. In addition, the College’s A.C. Buehler Library permanently houses the College’s unparalleled collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present.
