A Chicago-based artist known for her abstract sculpture exhibits her work at South Suburban College in South Holland.

“Secondhand Aesthetics” by Erin Smego is on display at the Dorothea Thiel Gallery at 15800 S. State St., South Holland. The installation consists of abstract sculptures that “examine and deconstruct gender expectations through ready-made fashions, textiles and constructions”. materials.”

“I’ve always loved making art,” Smego said. “It’s honestly a blessing and a curse at times, but today was a good reminder of how fun it is sometimes to appreciate art for what it is.”

Smego received his bachelor’s degree from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.

Her honors include an annual Edna L. Cushing Memorial Award in a juried exhibition Elements of Abstraction at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild and an Artists at Work Organization Fellowship. Smego was also artist-in-residence at the Chicago Artists Coalition HATCH Project.
