North Central College artists Giuseppe Pellicano ’12, alumna Ali Urasky ’11 and Christine Rabenold, assistant professor of art and student art gallery director, are among 17 artists displaying artwork at the Prak-sis Gallery in an exhibition titled “Knockout.” The exhibit runs Nov. 4-18 in the gallery located at 1917 W. Irving Park Road, Chicago.
Pellicano, a senior studio art major from Naperville, and Rabenold each have sculptures on display at the gallery. Urasky, a resident of Lisle, Ill., is displaying paintings. While a studio art major at North Central, Urasky featured her paintings and sculptures in a dual exhibition titled “Treasured Undesirables.” She has also had drawings, paintings and large-scale installations featured in the 2011 annual Senior Art Show.
Prak-sis was founded in January 2009 as a not-for-profit art organization. Prak-sis is a dynamic art movement that transforms building spaces that have been rendered vacant, due to economic downturn, obsolescence or neglect, into art galleries. It is also dedicated to developing exciting projects in art expos and gallery shows to demonstrate that culture can thrive in spite of economic crisis.
Art is among more than 55 majors, minors and other areas of study offered at North Central College. Visit northcentralcollege.edu/majors/art to learn more about the program.
