Helen Sheridan Memorial Grand Prize

acrylic on canvas, 36 x 36

Honored to have the above painting “Modern Interior with Rubber Plant” chosen as the Grand Prize winner at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts 2020 West Michigan Area Show as selected by juror William J. O’Brien.

Chicago-based artist William J. O’Brien works in drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. His idiosyncratic and exuberant forms are born out of an improvised and intuitive studio practice, rich in material experimentation. He is Assistant Professor of Art in the Department of Ceramics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Inspired by Modernism and the history of material usage of Outsider Art, O’Brien’s multidisciplinary practice is a search for identity and genuine expression through material and process.


The West Michigan Area Show is sponsored by the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by David Isaacson in memory of his wife, Helen Sheridan.
