CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A diverse selection of works on paper by 10 artists will be on view Sept. 7 through Oct. 13 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign:

“Paper Now” presents a cross-section of contemporary work by artists from throughout the Midwest and beyond. Some of the exhibiting artists typically work in the medium. Others, however, viewed the exhibition as an opportunity for experimentation.

U. of I. alumni Julie Farstad, Robert Horvath and Paul Nudd are among those whose art is included in “Paper Now.” Other featured artists are Jill Downen, Sally French, Chris Kahler, Anna Kunz, Mark Murphy, Gina Ruggeri and Geoffry Smalley.

An opening reception is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. on Sept. 7 at the gallery, 230 W. Superior St., Chicago.

I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
