Chicago Artistsâ€™ Month kicked off this week and it is expanding to the suburbs. On Saturday, October 4 from 2 to 4 p.m.
An opening reception at Curtâ€™s Cafe will kick off Show & Tell for Adults, an open exhibit featuring Evanstonâ€™s local talent. Two locations will host a month-long exhibit of art work created by adult Evanstonians, the Evanston Ecology Center at 2024 McCormick Boulevard and Curtâ€™s CafÃ© at 2922 Central Street.
The eventâ€™s mission is to let adults get back in touch with their creative side–something that gets lost after childhood Show & Tells have become a rite of passage. This yearâ€™s theme is Nature & the Environment.
My Kedzieâ€™s Red Amirals diptych and my Damselfly-Dragonfly diptych were both selected for this show, which includes art related to conservation, animals, flora and fauna, or humanitiesâ€™ connection to the earth and nature.
The Admirals are in the Ecology Center’s hallway, and I will confirm where my Odonata are hung later this week. Come out before the end of the month to see this lovely show!
