SPRINGFIELD — The Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter Museum at Lincoln Land Community College invites the public to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit, “Reflection,” on Friday, April 6. A reception will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Trutter Center on the Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road.
“Reflection” is the ninth exhibit in the museum and will feature the talents of 16 alumni of the LLCC Art program, their continued connection to the college and the faculty that inspired them. The artwork covers a variety of media, including oil and ink on panel, oil on canvas, ceramic, glass, photography, video and a three-dimensional working arcade game. Many of these art pieces will be for sale, and refreshments will be available at the event.
The alumni featured in the exhibit and their hometowns are Carrie Beard, Springfield; Denise Blakeman, Taylorville; Sharon Carter, Springfield; Ashley Dickey, Chatham; Adam Dupuis, Chatham; Jessica Gottstein, Springfield; Amanda Greive, Edinburg; Bryon Hartley, Chatham; Kyle Kirkpatrick, Rochester; Nino LoGrasso, Springfield; Brittney Leach, Athens; Lindsey Marr, Jacksonville; Maggie Michael, Nokomis; Jeff Miller, Beardstown; Jordan Minder, Rochester; and John Romang, Rochester.
A sample of artwork by Phil Trutter will also be on display. The Springfield architect had a lifelong interest in art and took art classes at LLCC in his 70s. Mr. and Mrs. Trutter’s collection of art and artifacts from their worldwide travels was donated to the college in 2000.
“Reflection” will continue to be available for viewing through May 18. Museum hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and anytime by appointment.
