Creative works of Central Illinois veterans and paintings by a British artist will be on display in two art shows opening November 1 in the Illinois Central College art galleries, located on the East Peoria Campus.

            The 2nd Annual Veterans’ Art Show will feature two-dimensional and three-dimensional works submitted by area veterans. This show takes place in the ICC Performing Arts Center Gallery, located in the lobby of the facility. A free, public reception is scheduled for November 9 from 6 pm to 8 pm in the gallery.

            Paintings by Mark David Lloyd will be displayed in an exhibit opening November 1 in ICC Art Gallery 336B, located in the Academic Building.

            Lloyd is a British contemporary artist who was born in Birmingham, England in 1971. He works predominantly in painting but also in other disciplines, and his works have been exhibited internationally. He graduated in 1992 from the Falmouth School of Art with a bachelor degree in fine art. He graduated in 2012 from the Winchester School of Art with a master degree in fine art. His work has been described as meta-modernist, post post-modernist and nascent.

            Both ICC exhibits will be on display through November 28.

            Hours of operation for Gallery 336B are Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to 5 pm and Friday from 9 am to noon. The Performing Arts Center Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm, and Friday from 9:30 am to noon.

            The exhibits are presented by the ICC Art Program and the Arts at ICC. The Arts at ICC has a rich history of enhancing the arts community and expanding education beyond the classroom.
