The Kishwaukee College Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition of works by the Midwest Paint Group, titled "A Winters Work," through Feb. 24.

The Kishwaukee College Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. The Gallery is free and open to the public.

"A Winters Work" is artwork created in winter time by 12 of the painters representing the Midwest Paint Group. These painters have been through years of study in plein air landscape painting, still-life painting, and figure painting. The works offer an encapsulation of forms and abstractions. This structural realization – perceiving responsively in nature – binds the group together in spirit as well as in execution. "A Winters Work" is a grouping of nearly 40 works created over the past several winters.

The Midwest Paint Group is an artist cooperative that was formed 18 years ago for members to exhibit nationally, together and individually. MPG members with works in "A Winters Work" are: Linda Carey, Glen Cebulash, Deborah Chlebek, Tina Engels, Chris Fletcher, Timothy King, Lynette Lombard, Jeremy Long, Amy MacLennan, Michael Neary, Bill White, and Megan Williamson.
