      CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — “Enterprising Machines,” a solo exhibition of works on paper by Chicago-based artist Jessica Gondek, will open September 30 at Giertz Gallery at Parkland College.

      This exhibit runs through Nov. 2 and includes an artist reception Thursday, Oct. 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The reception features a gallery talk by Gondek at 6:30 p.m. and music by the Derick Cordoba Trio. Gondek will provide an additional lecture earlier that day, at 1:15 p.m. in lecture hall L111.

      As with all Giertz Gallery programs, the exhibit, reception and lecture are free and open to the public.

      Jessica Gondek often incorporates current technology using both hand and mechanical approaches to develop her work. Stemming from an interest in geometry, machine aesthetics, architecture, and nature, her recent body of work is sparked by machines from the early part of the twentieth-century, old trade catalogues, domestic utilitarian objects, Da Vinci’s inventions and war machines, Duchamp, and contemporary art movements. Marrying both traditional media and digitally mediated computer approaches to the work, she blurs the line of distinction between the hand and the machine.
