September 27 through October 23
Saint Xavier University’s (SXU) Art Gallery will soon feature work of this meaningful nature as it welcomes an exhibit by artist Karen Ami. Ami’s work serves as a representation of the heart, and seeks to examine the balance of barriers such as life and death. Her work will be showcased in the second gallery installation of the fall semester. The exhibition, entitled, “Birth Marks” is slotted to run from Wednesday, September 27 through Monday, October 23 in the SXU Art Gallery on the Chicago campus, 3700 West 103rd Street. A reception will be held on Wednesday, September 27 beginning at 3:30 p.m.
The following is a statement from the artist which reflects her artwork for this exhibit: “I create drawings and writings in clay and break them apart—reconstructing and reassembling pieces to create a new whole. This process of deconstruction and the rebuilding; incorporates cuts and scratches as part of my addictive method of mosaic. The resulting works are an outcome of a continual journey of exploration and investigation. These compositions combine rich surfaces and bio-morphic forms, exposing complex and primitive stories of transformation and regeneration. The deconstruction and repair in my unique process is a metaphor for the life cycle and how the world can become whole.”

Marium Ranaa "A Place to Call Home"

Location: Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery
Reception: Sept. 25, 12:30-2 p.m.Artist Talk: 1 p.m.
This painting series depicts the complexity of belonging to two different cultures and trying to make a home out of stories of places and moments one has not personally experienced. The paintings depict landscapes that do not exist in our tangible world, lost somewhere between the past and the present. These vibrant landscapes seem as imaginary as the places that have existed before us.
This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals’ Building Bridges: Arts Culture and Identity, a component of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

Next Meeting October 13 at 6p in T100
Join us at the next Women in Technology dinner/meeting which will be held on Friday, October 13, 2017 at 6pm in the CSSIA area Lobby, T100 by the front entrance of the T-Building here at Moraine Valley. Dinner will be served. Dinner's on us.
Don't forget to visit the WIT website at: https://www.morainevalley.edu/student-success/support-services/women-in-technology/
It is so important for students to have a role model; someone they can look upon for guidance and support. Mentoring is such an important role in a girl's life who is entering the challenging world of technology.
The ladies at this dinner/meeting are excellent role models and have real life industry experiences they bring to the table. They guide and give some type of direction to the students. The program was developed as a supportive environment for female students to give them guidance and support.
At the meeting, there will be mentors from various areas in the industry to talk to the students. We also have a big sister/littler sister program where I assign big sisters to little sisters as well as mentors to students who are interested in the same field. I will hand out designations at this time. I will assign you a student at that time.
