Joann Goetzinger’s oil on wood painting titled “Arrows” is among works that will be on display at Eureka College’s Burgess Hall Art Gallery Dec.20 through Jan. 29.
An exhibit of artwork by Joann Goetzinger titled “Shaped Paintings: Oil on Wood” will be displayed Dec. 20 through
Jan. 29 in Burgess Hall Art Gallery at Eureka College.
Goetzinger’s art combines wood sculpture and painting. Her work is characterized by the use of visual elements derived from natural subjects. “These elements are transformed through the manipulation of color, form and shape,” she said. “The resulting imaginative anatomy becomes an artwork based on nature but not depicting its reality.”
Goetzinger, who also does metalwork, operates an art studio in Bloomington. She also is co-owner of Main Gallery, a fine arts gallery in downtown Bloomington that opened last year. It offers works by more than 35 area artists.
Goetzinger receive a bachelor’s degree from Illinois Wesleyan University, a master’s degree in vocal performance from the American Conservatory of Music and a master’s degree in art studio from Illinois State University.
The Eureka College gallery is located on the third floor of Burgess Memorial Hall, 300 E. College Ave. It is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment by calling (309) 467-6866. The gallery will be closed Dec. 23 through Jan. 3.
