Winifred Godfrey brings a decidedly contemporary look to the long tradition of floral and figurative painting. Her work is often described as photorealistic, although her interest is more with color and composition. Working with common subjects but presented large, Winifred’s art provides a fresh view of the intricate shapes, texture and translucency of flowers.

Soheila Azadi is an interdisciplinary visual artist and lecturer based in Chicago and Iran. Azadi’s inspirations come from her experiences of being a woman while living under theocracy. Now residing in the U.S. Azadi is dedicated to transnational feminism with a passionate devotion to the ways in which race, religion, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity intersect. This exhibition will continue in the atrium.

Thomas Gianni is the official courtroom sketch artist for WGN-TV, CNN, NBC, WTTW, and Chicago Tonight, having covered the Rod Blagojevich trial, Michael Jordan vs. Safeway, and the Jennifer Hudson family murder trial. His illustration expertise also includes book covers for Random House and the Robert E. Howard Foundation, cover art for Moonstone Comics and the Harry Potter Collectable Card Game. A mural he painted resides in the Children's Literature Room of the Eisenhower Public Library.
Mr. Gianni describes himself as "a working artist. The work I do is known as illustration. The origin of the word 'Illustration' comes from Latin meaning to illuminate, to shed light upon, to make something clear. Illustration is a way to illuminate through imagery. It is visual story telling. The prehistoric cave paintings of Lascaux and such like places are illustrations. To this day those primitive yet sublime images painted by some ancient hand continue to illuminate, to tell us stories of primordial existence. The stained glass windows in the great cathedrals of Europe tell stories from the Bible, not for the glory of God, but for the edification of Humankind. Michelangelo did the same with the Sistine Ceiling. Rembrandt was a story teller, as was Van Gogh and Norman Rockwell. That is quite a lineage. I consider my self to be in mighty good company for I too, tell stories. My illustration is my art, my work, my life."
