SXU Art Gallery opens first exhibit on August 22
Saint Xavier University's (SXU) Art Gallery will feature the drawings of Tatjana Jovancevic and serve as the first exhibit for the fall 2016 semester, which is titled "Tracing the Inscape."
The exhibit will feature works on paper and photographs of site specific work as well. Her art is influenced by the effects of being an individual from a war-torn country, as well as by her inner reflection and examination. She delves into themes of detachment, seeking of a true home, lost sense of identity and the pursuit of belonging and reconciliation.
Jovancevic was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, one of the republics in former Yugoslavia. She came to the United States in 1991 as an exchange student. While she was here the war broke out in her homeland and she ended up staying to finish her schooling. She currently resides in Chicago.
The exhibit will be open from Monday, August 22 through Wednesday, September 14. A presentation by the artist and reception will be held in the SXU Gallery on Wednesday, September 14 at 3:30 p.m. All are welcome!
