She gained her bachelor’s in portray from the College of Oregon and attended the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art in Dijon, France. She now paints whole time soon after a profitable occupation in retail artwork route.
Glisic, a printmaker, also joins the Artist Showcase group for the 1st time, exhibiting meticulously hand-drawn and silkscreened functions.
At first from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Glisic is an artist and designer whose illustrations have appeared on guide handles from Penguin Guides, Chicago Reader, Felt, 7 Stories Push and other individuals.
She has been the artist-in-home at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, Spudnik Press Chicago, and Marin Verbanov Residency in Bulgaria.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
Photographer Brian Goodman returns to Artist Showcase for the 3rd time, and his abstract photograph — portion of his “Solace of Space” collection — is showcased on the exhibit’s announcement poster.
Goodman analyzed pictures and graphic style at El Camino Higher education in Gardena, California, the Bezalel Academy of Artwork & Layout in Jerusalem, Israel, and Otis/Parsons Faculty of Art & Design and style in Los Angeles.
Goodman’s function was also featured last year in a Northwind Artwork show entitled “Their Footsteps Remain: Photographs from Manzanar,” a photographic tribute to the ruins of this Japanese internment camp situated in Northern California.
His existing “Solace of Space” series is created to attract viewers into spaces of ease and comfort and solitude, free from the visual sound encountered every working day, organizers reported.
