The Kaskaskia College Dr. Dee and Sue Boswell Art Gallery is currently the host of a new display entitled “Persistent Pursuit” that will be available through the summer. The display will feature artists Tim Wight and Angela Mircsov.
Tim Wight of Greenville has worked for Kaskaskia for 13 ½ years and has also worked at Lincoln Land College and Greenville College. He received his master’s in fine arts in 2008 with a concentration in ceramics. He is a working potter and is currently on the final stages of completing his home studio construction.
Wight’s work has formal issues of space internal to external and focuses on the internal as the primary source of inspiration, which inflicts, manipulates and changes the outward appearance or surface of the forms. Artist Tim Wight says, “This method of thought has led to many changes in my works progression since 2001 when I realized to work within myself. My works borders on biological references, primal cellular forms, and evolutions of shape implying growth. I work with an abstract view point of connections of muscle to bone, fiber to stem and give hints to these elements in the structure”.
Angela Mircsov is a St. Louis native who has a passion for art. She studied art at Millikin University in Decatur and obtained her BFA in Art Management. She later received an MFA in Studio Art at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO. Her work has been exhibited nationwide. She has also been actively involved in the nonprofits art galleries and education centers in the St. Louis area inspiring students in the visual art field. Along with doing her own artwork, Angela is an Adjunct Professor at Lindenwood University Belleville Campus and the Art Institute of St. Louis enriching students in the world of art.
Mircsov says her main inspiration for her work comes from the natural world of landscape. She adds, “A natural landscape can tell many stories that are layered in the colors that represent the scape. The natural world provides an endless supply of inspiration for the artistic eye”.
