LOCATION: Diversity Gallery and Corridor Art Gallery, Administration Building
DATES: October 2 through November 3
TIME: Opening Reception, 6 p.m.

NOTES:   The Quinsigamond Community College/ARTSWorcester Art Gallery and the QCC Diversity Art Gallery are now showing two new exhibits.

A display of works by local artist Jack Sikes is on display at the QCC Administration Building Corridor Art Gallery.  Sikes, intrigued by the sizes and shapes of places in the world around him, captures many local landscapes and houses in his pieces. The public is invited to attend the opening night reception today at 6 p.m. in Conference Room 123 in the administration building. A gallery walk with the artist will be held from 6:30 to 7 p.m.

“The Evolution of Thought,” a collection by Latin American artist, Aida Rodriguez, is on display in the QCC Diversity Art Gallery in the administration building.  In “Evolution,” Rodriguez uses primitive symbols and bright colors to show the viewer how her cultural identity is “centered on the female and remains central to the memories of the Latino matriarchs of my youth.”

Both collections will be on display through November 3. Admission is always free, and regular viewing hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
