“Mark making refers to ‘the different lines, dots, marks, patterns, and textures that artists use,’” while piccolo “refers to a pop of color or an item that stands out in composition,” the Oak Park Public Library explains on its website.
On Saturday, Dec. 17, 1-3 p.m., at the Main Gallery in the Oak Park Public Library, 834 Lake St., the library will host a group exhibition called “Mark Making With Piccolo” featuring advanced art students taught by local artist and Oak Park Art League instructor Jesse Howard.
“The students’ artwork in this exhibit consists of lines often found in contemporary graphics, working with gray and black washes, suggesting ancient stone,” the library explains. “Their figures are often solitary and distorted. Overall, tehri works speaks of landscape, still life, and the disenfranchised.”
