Curated and Juried Shows

Steven Lockwood is a graduate student at Northern Illinois University where he is receiving a Masters Degree in Sculpture. Not only is Lockwood a co-founder and Gallery Director for Water Street Studios, before leaving for school, but he is also a professional sculptor. Here is a full list of gallery shows Steven has put together. Lockwood is the Gallery Coordinator for NIU's Gallery 215. Gallery 215 is a place for grad and undergrad students to show there work to the public. It is a place of creative nurturing where students, faculty and visiting artists mature their work and ideas towards becoming a professional artist. Lockwood is for hire to curate a show in your gallery. The Gallery Curator will develop the theme for the exhibit and find an artist whose work fits that theme. The Curator will plan and implement all exhibitions including soliciting artists, budgeting, and installation of work.

Carbon - Life, Decay and Beyond

 

Through Carbon -  Life, Decay, and Beyond, artists bring Carbon's use, its impact and its future upfront. Carbon is the element that is the basis of all known life forms. The duality of carbon to the existence of everything living, and its eventual death and decay, offers the artist multiple venues for interpretation.

illumunate Show
 

illuminate explores light in all of its forms and is open to conceptual interpretation. This show is beyond anything Water Street Studios has ever done. illuminate is more of an "event" than a show. This is a dimly lit show, with the gallery's house lights off and sporadic track lights on. This show also exhibits work in the additional 3,800 sq ft space adjacent to our already large gallery. This space will have all it's lights off and feature work that is self-illuminating.
