The opening of René Arceo’s art exhibition was held on January 19 in the John Almquist Gallery at North Shore Country Day School.
The display, arranged by Lower School Art Teacher Montserrat Alsina, will run from January 19 through March 3. Arceo will visit the School next month giving a presentation in the Upper School and will visit the art studios in the three divisions.
Arceo was born in rural Mexico, coming to the U.S. in 1979 and eventually residing in Chicago. His experience is rooted in graphics, drawing, painting and collage. Arceo graduated from the School of the Art Institute. His involvement in the art community has included the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum (now the National Museum of Mexican Art) and the Chicago Public School system where he works as an art educator, lecturer and printmaker.
The gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.
