Rathje Shows at West Central Illinois Arts Center
October 22 – November 27, 2010
Artists Matt Myers and Terry Rathje have perfected the trick of turning one man’s trash into another man’s treasure. Their stunning metal sculptures are made of recycled and repurposed materials and are prized by art lovers throughout the region.
Myers’ work combines his talents as a metalsmith with his love of nature in an exploration of sculpture, paintings, torchieres and vessels. Rathje’s assemblages and installations demonstrate his love of recombining found objects and playing with ideas both contemplative and serious. This exhibit is truly a treat and must not be missed! It remains on display until November 27.
The Gallery is open Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
