North Central College is hosting an exhibit of art works created by residents of the Monarch Landing continuing care retirement community in Naperville.

More than 20 Monarch Landing residents will exhibit their original artwork, including paintings, metal sculpture, fiber arts, photography and Japanese book-binding. The juried exhibit is free, open to the public and will run Aug. 1-7 in the College’s Schoenherr Gallery at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave., Naperville.

The exhibit extends the partnership between the Fine Arts Group at Monarch Landing, a resident-run organization dedicated to bringing fine arts to the community, and North Central College’s Fine and Performing Arts program. Since the start of the partnership in 2009, North Central College students have performed at Monarch Landing six times and residents have purchased more than 700 tickets to North Central College fine arts performances. The Resident Art Show is the first art show hosted by Monarch Landing at the College’s Fine Arts Center.

Schoenherr Gallery’s summer hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, and one hour before most performances in the Fine Arts Center.
