Two new gallery exhibitions open Sunday at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston.

Convergence: The Art of Karl and Indira Johnson will be presented in the first-floor gallery while an exhibition of art by students of Leslie Hirshfield will be on display in the second-floor gallery.

An artists reception will be held on Sunday, April 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. for the second-floor exhibit, and from 3 to 5 p.m. for the first-floor exhibit, at the artscenter at 927 Noyes St.

Living and being together in India, Sweden, and the U.S. for over 40 years has had a profound influence on the work of husband and wife artists Karl and Indira Johnson.

Indira creates new objects that explore the constant process of transformation and change in the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Karl’s paintings incorporate the rhythm and beauty, chaos and contradiction of the dynamic systems found in nature and the sciences.

Convergence will be on display through May 12; the Hirshfield student exhibit runs through April 28. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free. For more information, call 847-448-8260.
