NORMAL,Ill.- Some renown natural lands in the United States, will now be viewable virtually through a new exhibit presented by Heartland Community College.
Originally scheduled for presentation on Heartland’s campus, “mother•land” will move online to www.heartland.edu/artGallery beginning April 26.
Heartland’s Joe McCauley Gallery presents an exhibit of still images by Monica Estabrook.
Estabrook describes her color prints in the exhibit as anti-sublime landscapes.
Featuring the Grand Canyon, Death Valley Basin, Petrified Forest, Sequoia National Forest, Big Sur and other scenic locations.
Estabrook’s photographs purposely subvert sublime landscape conventions to express, “that feeling of squeezing in suppressed passions that end up being overpowered by the necessity to rear children and provide for the family,”said Estabrook .
The virtual exhibit will feature digital images, videos and will be accompanied by poetry written by local students.
Both the poems and Estabrook’s exhibition celebrate the final week of National Poetry Month and the educational, artistic partnership between Heartland Community College and Bloomington High School.
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
Exhibits at Heartland’s Joe McCauley Gallery are free. The Gallery, located in the Instructional Commons Building on Heartland’s Normal campus, is temporarily closed to walk-ins due to COVID-19.
