HCC Exhibit Features Works by Joann Goetzinger

Joann Goetzinger: Sculptural Drawings will be on display August 18 through October 10 in the Joe McCauley Gallery, located in Room 2507 of the Instructional Commons Building (ICB) on Heartland’s Normal campus, 1500 W. Raab Road. An artist talk will be held at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, October 9, in ICB 2805, with a reception to follow from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in the gallery.

In her Sculptural Drawings series, Goetzinger combines two and three-dimensional materials to imaginatively translate elements of vocal music into a visual form. She uses aluminum and wood to sculpt abstract, biomorphic forms and then adds colorful lines and shapes with acrylic paint to increase their visual animation. Her works actively engage interplay between positive shape and negative space, both within the piece and against the gallery walls.

Exhibits, events, and parking at Heartland’s Joe McCauley Gallery are free. Gallery hours are weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on days the College is open. For more information about this exhibit, contact Danell Dvorak, gallery coordinator, at danell.dvorak@heartland.edu and (309) 268-8599, or call Heartland’s Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Department at (309) 268-8620.

About the Artist

Goetzinger began her career in the arts as a music educator and professional singer with the Norman Luboff Choir. After discovering a strong connection between music and visual art, she redirected her creative vision towards portraying musical qualities in drawing, painting and sculpture. Her works have recently been exhibited at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria, Eureka College, Galesburg Civic Art Center, Illinois State University Galleries, McLean County Art Center and Woman Made Gallery in Chicago.

Active in the Downtown Bloomington revitalization effort, Goetzinger opens her art studio during First Fridays at 101 W. Monroe Street. She is also a member of the Around the Corner Artist Group and is a co-founder, former co-owner and current exhibiting artist of Main Gallery 404.

Goetzinger holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from Illinois Wesleyan, a master’s degree in music from the American Conservatory of Music and a master of fine arts degree from Illinois State University.
