Artist : Joan M. Ladendorf
on exhibit : August 8 - September 8, 2018
Addison Center for the Arts welcomed the public to view the exhibit “Avenues of Inquiry” in the gallery from August 8 to September 8, 2018. The show was a retrospective the work of artist Joan Ladendorf.
Joan is a self-taught artist who has been exploring various artist possibilities over the past 40 years. Her journey covered theater costuming, graphic design, quilt making and paper collage. Currently, she is back on the computer creating what she likes to call “Photo Collage”. Making use of her image collection of textures and landscape backgrounds, throwing in shapes taken from her fabric compositions or drawn with the computer mouse, she is creating “Visions”, “Monsters” and most recently “Creatures”. The elements are digitally assembled using Photoshop’s various layering techniques, and further enhanced with dimensional effects.
The artist reception was on Saturday, August 11th between 2 - 4pm.
This exhibit is partially funded by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
