Twelve works by well-known Chicago artist Sergio Gomez are now on display in the Krasa Center Gallery at Benedictine University through Wednesday, November 7. Most of the works were produced this year and four are from the collection the artist titled “El Camino” or “The Road.” He composed two other mixed media pieces in a sequence of images. Gomez is the co-owner and administrator of 33 Collective Gallery in Chicago, which features both established and emerging artists. He is also a full-time art faculty member at South Suburban College in South Holland. Born in Mexico in 1971, Gomez studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Governors State University and Northern Illinois University, where he earned a Master of Fine Arts. While at Governors State, he was awarded a Lincoln Laureate Medallion for his artistry. The public is invited to a reception for Gomez from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28 in the Krasa Center Gallery. For more information, contact Fr.
