In a couple of days (Sunday, July 12th) I'll be demonstrating my drawing skills, while also enriching my portfolio at an outdoor event through the Skokie Park District, held at the Emily Oaks Nature Center called "A Brush with Nature." I'll most likely be perched near the wildflower garden. There will be around 50 other artists there, spread through the center's grounds. I can't wait to see all of their different styles and techniques. Fingers crossed it won't rain.
A week from today (July 17th) is the opening for "Drawn to Nature." It is an multimedia exhibit of artists working with diverse materials, while sharing an intimate experience they have had with nature. Here is the invitation card to that exhibit. I hope you can make it to the reception if you're local.
I am very intrigued by the painting on the invitation card and can't wait to see it, and all the other work at the actual exhibition. It's nice that these sorts of exhibitions are going on to reflect indoors, what we can also see and feel outdoors.
I know you've seen this here once before but in relation to the show, here's the piece I'm exhibiting:
