The Koehnline Museum is holding a free gala reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, for a new exhibition by two of Oakton Community College's senior faculty members who will be retiring after long careers with the art department. Farewell Show: Ceramics by Peter Hessemer and Paintings by James Krauss runs through Friday, March 22, at the museum, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines. Hessemer's open-ended creative process draws its inspiration from natural objects. His works include stoneware and porcelain clay pieces as well as a series of drawings. An abstract painter for three decades, Krauss worked on large canvasses before shifting to small works on paper. The exhibition will contain a range of his pieces -- including his latest works as he turns to pure abstraction, limited to graphite and white paint. The museum is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call (847) 635-2633, or visit
