Sherri Denault, born in Chicago and residing in Bourbonnais, Illinois, is an artist whose work is made with an exploration and collision of materials: India ink, gesso, acrylic, rice paper, and thread on canvas, wood panel, or paper. Evident layers of these different materials are built up, combining, repelling, veiling, and disguising each other and creating an organic, chaotic field of pattern. She also explores with thread and sewing by machine and hand on rice paper and also cheesecloth where the threads are manipulated, stitched, treated and painted.
Denault earned her Masters of Art from Governors State University in University Park, IL in 2013. While earning her degree she worked at GSU’s Visual Art Gallery as the graduate assistant under the gallery director, Jeff Stevenson. She has been an adjunct professor of art at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL since 2006 and teaches foundation courses.
Patty McWilliams graduated from Governors State University in 2009 with her Master’s degree in studio arts, focusing on oil painting and large-scale portraiture. McWilliams is the owner of Monkey Mind Art Studio, a supporter of Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, IL, serves on the board of Tall Grass Arts Association in Park Forest, IL, Gretchen Charlton Art Gallery in Kankakee, IL, and is an adjunct instructor of Art and Design at Kankakee Community College, Kankakee IL.
