        NEIU professor Nathan Mathews is shining a bright light on dull architecture with his photography. Mathews’ collection “Ersatz” focuses on architecture and ways people respond to it, specifically unappealing architecture. It’s being displayed in the Gretchen Charlton Art Gallery at Presence Heritage Village in Kankakee, Illinois, until Oct.14.

        Recently tenured, Mathews has been teaching at Northeastern Illinois University since 2009 but has been teaching photography since he was in graduate school at Columbia College Chicago in 2006.

        Mathews’ photography was displayed in more than 50 locations in the last ten years.

        Gretchen Charlton Art Gallery at Presence Heritage Village is located at 901 N Entrance Ave. Kankakee, Illinois, and is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Saturday.
