McHenry County College (MCC) will host a student painting exhibition titled “Accretion Interrupted” at the Woodstock Courthouse Satellite Gallery, 101 N. Johnson St., in Woodstock from Nov. 2 through Jan. 11, 2018. “Accretion Interrupted” features new work by MCC students in Mark Arctander’s painting class. The title came about due to the loss of an adult student, Richard Grusdis, whom had taken painting classes with Arctander for about seven years. Grusdis died suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving an interruption in the gathering of people, artwork, energy, and friendships forged in Arctander’s painting classroom/studio. The exhibit showcases the work of three returning student artists: Michelle Mathis of Crystal Lake, Kathleen Jagman and Kayti Sault, both of Woodstock; and debuts the works of four other students: Jacquelyn Serak of Algonquin, Julia Fuhler and Craig Kirchoff, both of Crystal Lake; and Peyton Thatcher of McHenry.
