If you’re living in the west burbs of Chicago, you may wanna drop into the Oak Park Art League gallery to see their current exhibition, Creatures Among Us. It is an animal-themed show that was open to anyone, and on the opening reception they revealed both juried awards as well as a People’s Choice. I sadly missed the reception and haven’t seen it hung yet, but I plan to in the next weekend or so. The show runs until March 5th.
I submitted some older pieces as well as a new drawing, “Bare,” inspired by the mysterious fur-loss of some Andean spectacled bears at a zoo in Leipzig, Germany.
