La Grange is featured in the August CHICAGO MAGAZINE as having the best suburban downtown. (see page 103). In the blurb they mention our Art League as one of the factors that makes this town feel like of Mayberry for the 21st Century!
Speaking of articles, today's Trib Local has a story on Holly Hess, her artist of the month exhibit and her rather unusual art education. Check it out.
Holly's reception was held last Sunday afternoon. Despite really really dreadful heat and a messed up street, there was a large turn out. The exhibit is interesting and diverse. Holly has explored a lot of avenues.....sculpture, pastel, oil, silk painting.....and many different subjects. If you haven't seen it yet, you should really drop by and enjoy.
Plein air last Wednesday was at Kiwanis Park in La Grange. There were only two of us. It was a beautiful day and the flowers were in full bloom, great for anyone who likes to paint nature at its most colorful. It will meet there again next Wednesday morning. Try to go....the flowers will still be there and hopefully the weather will cooperate again.
