Ultra-Deep Field Art Exhibit
Opening Reception, Friday, October 24, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm; Gallery open October 20-November 14
Rockford University Art Gallery, Clark Arts Center, 5050 E. State St., Rockford, IL 61108
Artists: Daniel Baird, Sarah and Joseph Belknap, Katie Bell, Bill Conger, Laura Davis, Adam Farcus, Bob Jones, Holly Murkerson, Erin Washington
Curated by Jason Judd, Ultra-Deep Field is a group exhibition that considers the inadequacy of representing desire, time, and scale by way of hand. Though the artwork spans sculpture, photography, drawing, and video, the pieces posture themselves as self-evident, allowing the literal to be experienced as poetic. In the exhibition, Joseph Belknap lights Sarah Belknap’s cigarette using the sun, Bill Conger stencils an exact replica of a poem written by his 8 year old son, while Erin Washington’s 9 x 12 black acrylic panel documents the process of her hand healing by using her injured hand to draw itself. To this end, Ultra-Deep Field suggests possibilities of how to reorient one’s body with the everyday world that acts upon it.
The Rockford University Art Gallery is located in the Clark Arts Center on Rockford University’s campus at 5050 East State Street, Rockford. Gallery Hours are Monday – Thursday, 3 – 6 p.m. and by appointment.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Clark Arts Center is wheelchair accessible. For more information, contact the Rockford University Box Office at 815-226-4100 or Molly Carter, Gallery Director at 815-226-4105, M.Carter@Rockford.edu

Freeport Train of Terror

Silver Creek and Stephenson Railroad - Train of Terror
2954 S. Walnut Rd
Freeport, IL 61032
Each night, the harsh light of reality fades into darkness, but there is nothing in the dark that is not there in the light. Or is there? On certain October nights, the darkness casts only a thin veil over your primeval fears. This veil is pierced by the twin steel rails of the Silver Creek and Stephenson Railroad.
The train of terror embarks upon those rails into a surreal realm haunted by ghosts, ghouls, vampires, zombies and other pillars of the undead community. Through the years, many terrors have been visited upon the passengers of this train. Is your nightmare an insane killer with a bloody machete and flaming torch? Perhaps it's a ghost ship whose pirate crew barrages you with cannon fire. Maybe it's imprisoned lost souls laboring away in an eternity of despair. All of these have been seen in past years.
What does this year hold for travelers? Ride the train and find out... if you dare.
Train of Terror Fare: $8
