This Saturday, CIADC is very pleased to present the third exhibition of 3D works hosted in the Art & Design Center Gallery: Instructor Showcase with works by Nathan Aldredge, Nikki Renee Anderson, Alan Baker, Mark Carroll, Sarah Holden, Laura Miracle, Erik Newman, Matthew Runfola, Dominic Sansone, and Quentin Shaw.
Our instructors at the Chicago Industrial Art & Design Center are talented teachers and exceptional creative makers. Their varied interests and approaches enhance the diversity of what we are able to offer to our students. In their personal work, each instructor utilizes the same skills, materials, tools, and processes taught at CIADC, applied in a manner reflective of their own individual style.
The opening reception for Instructor Showcase will take place Saturday, March 19 from 4 to 6 PM following the final open studio sessions of Winter Term.
Join us, usher in the new season, and see what our staff members have been making when they're not sharing their skills in the CIADC workshops! Food, drink, and great company – see you Saturday!
