KidsTripWinter Art Exhibit

Hinsdale resident David Marcet is a figurative artist who hails from Chicago, Illinois. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Drake University in 1997 and his MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005. David is a professor of art at Benedictine University.

“The work in this show is a family portrait. I have included multiple self-portraits that chronicle my own experience, portraits of my three children, my wife, and portraits of my parents. The title of the show, Up Close and Personal, refers to both the scale and context of the paintings. All the portraits are extreme close-ups and deal with personal space.”

The exhibit, located in the Quiet Reading Room, is free and open to the public during regular Library hours.
December 9 through February 28
