Visual artist Nikkole Huss’ works to be displayed at SXU Gallery

The works of visual artist Nikkole Huss will be displayed from Thurs., Feb. 3 to Thurs., Feb. 24 at Saint Xavier University’s SXU Gallery, located in the Chicago Campus’ Warde Academic Center, 3700 W. 103rd St.

Huss will give a lecture about the exhibit, titled “Permeable Perimeters: Needle-Felted Wool & Encaustic on Panel,” at a reception at 3:30 p.m., Wed., Feb. 9 in the gallery. Huss said the exhibit is inspired by photographs of topographical terrain and outer space phenomena collected from various sources such as Google Earth, the Hubble Space Telescope and Huss’ own telescope.

“By gazing far beyond the human eye’s ability to see and tapping into technologically driven vantage points, it is possible to perceive the impossible and make the intangible tangible,” Huss said.

Huss is an assistant professor of art at Concordia University. She has a Master’s degree in studio art from the School of the Art Institute, a bachelor’s degree in art education from Northern Illinois University and studied art history at American University of Rome. Her work has been displayed in Germany, Italy, Scotland and across the United States.

The Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, please contact the Gallery at (773) 298-3081.
