Chicago artist Cherith Lundin will display her work in “An excess of ground,” the next Saint Mary’s art show Aug. 28 through Oct. 10.
Lundin’s work will be on display at the Lillian Davis Hogan Galleries, located in the Toner Student Center. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. An opening reception is scheduled for 4:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, at the galleries.
Lundin is a visual artist whose work ranges in media from drawing and painting to photography and installation. Her work examines the architectural contours of every day life and extracts moments of fluidity within familiar spaces, where apparent dichotomies such as inside and outside, figure and ground, proximity and distance mingle.
Lundin grew up in Germany and received an M.F.A. from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and she has taught painting and drawing at colleges and universities throughout the United States.
