Art Teachers Encouraged to Exhibit at Illinois Art Educator Show
It’s not uncommon for art educators to find themselves with little to no time for their own studio practice with few opportunities to exhibit their artwork. With that in mind, the Illinois Art Educator Show was developed. Niles West visual arts instructor, John Zilewicz, who founded this show three years ago, encourages educators to participate in this exhibition.
The 3rd Annual Art Educator Exhibition will be held from April 21 through May 13 at the Bridgeport Art Center, 1200 West 35th Street in Chicago. The Opening Reception will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, April 21. For more information go to www.bridgeportart.com.
The primary goal of the show is to encourage art educators to continue developing their artistic practice. In addition, the show provides art educators an exclusive opportunity to showcase their artwork with colleagues. Art educators from all across the Chicagoland area are invited to participate in this one-of-a-kind event, an exhibition focused on celebrating the creative talents of the art educator. The Illinois Art Educator Show is a juried show, featuring over 100 works of art from city, suburban, public, and private educators. Winners will be awarded more than $1,000 in cash prizes/awards.
So, whether you’re actively making art or it’s been a few years, there’s no time like the present. Please make every effort to submit your artwork to this show, so art educators can prove that those who teach, also do.
