In the Galleries in October:

“Through My Eyes” – Linda Lee Ligocki

Still time to stop in and see this amazing work – through November 9.


The Chesterton Art Center is excited to host the 2-D and 3-D work of Linda Lee Ligocki in both galleries from October 3 through November 9. The show “Through My Eyes” is a retrospective and an exhibit of current work. It is years of observing a particular viewpoint compiled into expressive surreal watercolors on rag, watercolor and acrylic on canvas, ink drawings, a published book, layered oil drawings on Archival transparent vellum, and 3 dimensional sculptures.

This exhibition is about form, color, and line that was triggered by a questionable thought. Each piece triggers dialogue both in the negative and positive way. The work embodies a dialectic…it embodies juxtapositions ranging from color phenomena to intertwined social commentaries.

The exhibit is broken into two categories. The entry exhibit is about color, line, form, and abstraction, creating visual abstract phenomena. A theory the artist developed of shifting four layers of drawings randomly using chaos to create cohesive results.

The larger gallery will show work that expresses social commentaries from daily journaling ink drawings to large works on paper and canvas. Included is a series of the daily processing of 6×6 formatted watercolor/acrylic on board that represent visual responses to emotional moments. Executed in 2020 is one interactive “Hopeful Heart” sculpture and one “Equality…Why can’t we all be green and mingle like the trees?” sculpture which will be on display.

Linda has a long list of artistic achievements, one of which was having a piece selected to be part of ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, MI in 2018.

The exhibit concludes on Monday, November 9.


This is a free event, open to the public. Regular hours are weekdays 11-4, and Saturdays 10-2. To provide a safe environment for the community, all guests are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing at the Art Center.
