VICTORY TOWNSHIP — The West Shore Community College Humankind series is hosting an exhibition and live art performance of artist Sergio Gomez’s artwork at the college’s Manierre Dawson Gallery.  The exhibition and presentation are free and open to the public. 

Artist Sergio Gomez will produce a large-scale piece live in the gallery, working with WSCC students and community members on Tuesday, April 12 and Wednesday, April 13, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day. After the work is completed it will be presented in the gallery until April 22.

Gomez is a Chicago-based visual artist, curator and educator. He studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, received a master’s of art degree from Governors State University and master’s of fine art degree from Northern Illinois University. He is known for his large-scale figurative abstraction paintings and charcoal drawings exploring the cycles of life. He has exhibited nationally, internationally and has many works in the National Museum of Mexican Art, Brauer Museum, and other public and private collections. 

Besides his studio work, Sergio Gomez is a curator with a career of over 100 curated exhibitions since 2010. He is curator and Director of Exhibitions at the Zhou B. Art Center, director and founder of 33 Contemporary Gallery, co-founder of the coaching academy Art NXT Level, and founder of Amplified Art Network. 

“Sergio is the contemporary version of the renaissance artist,” said WSCC’s Professor of Art and Curator, Eden Ünlüata-Foley. “With his boundless energy, he makes art, curates, teaches and mentors many artists and curators like myself. He is always looking for ways to build community, and share experiences. With this event and exhibition folks may observe, converse and participate in the making.” Any community member who is interested in participating is encouraged to contact Ünlüata-Foley at nfoley@westshore.edu for details.  Additional information on the artist may be found at sergiogomezonline.com.
