Call for Artists!

We are now looking for artists to be juried for a solo or themed group month-long exhibition in 2018. For more information, click here.

This October, Joe Fournier will unveil his show Orange, Orange! Two Takes on a Secondary Color. Fournier explores the color orange in two spheres, its association with illumination and peace in the Eastern World and the loud, boisterous version in the West. Fournier is an award-winning artist, musician and animator. His political strip is a regular feature in the Chicago Tribune. This show runs from October 1 – October 31.

In November, OTTA students and faculty will disply works alongside the watercolors of long time OTTA student Suzanne Flavin in Celebrating Watercolors. This show will run from November 3 – November 30.
