WCC faculty exhibits artwork

By on November 27, 2009

Sugar Grove—Waubonsee Community College Assistant Professor of Art/Ceramics Doug Jeppesen, of Sugar Grove, and Associate Professor of Graphic Design John Fu, of Palatine, recently showed their artwork as part of two local exhibits.

Jeppesen displayed one of his works in the second annual “Clay Cubed” national exhibition in Warrenville, Ill. Sponsored by ClaySpace, the exhibit ran through Nov. 21 at the Illinois Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) facility in Warrenville, Ill. It challenged artists to create or exhibit a work that can fit in a 12-inch by 12-inch by 12-inch display case.

Waubonsee offers a variety of ceramics courses in its 10,000-square-foot ceramics studio. The college’s Sugar Grove Campus houses three wood-fire kilns, as well as outdoor wood/salt and soda kilns.

Fu had his oil painting, “The Dream with a White Peacock,” accepted into the “Vicinity” art exhibit at the Norris Gallery in St. Charles. The recent show featured artists residing within a 50-mile radius of the gallery.
