Constance Volk

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

View the world through artist/musician Constance Volk‘s eyes: paintings that offer marbled pathways through layers of sediment and serpentine waterways.

Come journey through landscapes imagined by Constance, inspired by earthly elements, at our opening reception on Friday, October 2nd, from 6—8pm.

This exhibit is curated by Larry Lapidus.

Regular hours:


Constance Volk (artwork, flutes, voice) grew up in Seattle, the daughter of an opera singer and a pianist. She began studying music at the age of 5, and enjoyed creating visual art as her hobby.

Constance eventually moved to Chicago to attend DePaul University, where she earned a degree in flute performance. Still maintaining her interest in visual art, she studied oil painting and 3 dimensional foundations. Constance then joined the artist collective ‘Catalyst’, where she met her life partner, Caton.

Constance has developed her career in music as a founding member of ensemble Dal Niente. she also performs with Lookingglass Theatre and The Chicago Wind Project, among many other ensembles.

In her tandem painting career, she recently had a blacklight art exhibit of her work at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago. Constance maintains a stream of back to back commissions and is totally obsessed with painting.

Her other great joy in life is mothering her 2 daughters, Geneva and Sylvia. Visit ConstanceVolk.com to view her paintings, poster art, coloring books and portraits, or to hear clips of her many ensembles.

A note about construction:

Due to road work, there are detours on Lake Street through the week of October 5th. Not to worry—you can still access the arts center by taking 5th Place to the paved alleyway, and travelling south to our parking lot. We are the 1st red brick building on the left just past the auto repair shop. Plenty of parking in our lot, or just to the south of us in the new parking lot, located at the former Ming Ling restaurant.
