Info

The James S. Murray Gallery at Lincoln Land Community College will feature the exhibit "In This Place" by local artist Will Redwood July 2-26. The public is invited to view the exhibit Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and attend a reception with the artist on July 18 from noon to 1 p.m. The gallery is located on the upper level of Menard Hall on the LLCC Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road.

Through painting, "In This Place" captures the mood of personally meaningful places of being. "We each inhabit our own inner world of contemplation. In this place … we each take part in shaping what will be. We each have our own places of being," explains Redwood. "These places are the subject of these paintings."

The symbolism in his paintings conveys paradoxes experienced in life — loss and gain, joy and pain, growth and decay. "When I finish, the painting remains like a passage to that place of being," says Redwood. "As we are each on a journey of our own, we are all together, and our experiences are often similar."

Redwood is a painter and vector illustrator as well as the author of two independent storybooks. For six years, he also taught art for the Boys and Girls Club of Springfield. Redwood earned a degree in drawing and graphic design from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in 2003. Since then, he has continued to make and show art at various galleries, events and retail spaces.
