June“Slightly Retrospective” A Mix of Media by Linda Treshansky
Linda’s art is unique, originating in her imagination, while finding its roots in nature. It possesses a magical quality - the sort of magic that comes to us at times when our minds are open and unhampered by the realities of day-to-day living. Linda has worked in various areas of the visual arts. She has lectured in the Department of Museum Education at the Art Institute of Chicago and has taught young children, enriching their learning process with art and poetry. Join us in June as we walk through a world of imagination and poetry through her Art Exhibit in the Front Room.
An opening reception will be held June 9, 2-4pm.
JulyWorld Traveler John P. Green presents Putting Faces on Literary Places
A first-hand visit to great places in books
A good author “paints” an image in the reader’s mind. When a good artist creates images that come with a story, it changes the entire picture. Traveler and Artist, John P Green, has visited many of the unusual and mystical places authors write about. Do you ever wonder if the authors always get it right when they describe remote and exotic locals? Do artists and authors “see” these places differently? Inspired to travel in part by great locations in great books such as: “On The Beach”, “Murder on the Orient Express”, “The Breath of God” and “Ashanti to Zulu”, John has spent the past twenty years “writing” and drawing his own personal travelogue adventure tale. Along with the Summer Reading Program theme “Have Book Will Travel” John brings travel, art and literature together at Indian Trails Library through his July art show and interactive discussion program. Join John as he presents “Putting Faces on Literary Places” on July 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Large Meeting Room. Refreshments will be served.
AugustMonart Drawing Studio Art Exhibit
Monart School of the Arts' philosophy is based upon the methodology described in the world acclaimed books "Drawing with Children" and "Drawing with Older Children and Teens" by Mona Brookes, founder of Monart Institute. In a comfortable and nurturing environment, students are taught there is no right or wrong way to draw and can experience the magic and joy of artistic expression using different media. Students learn to recognize the 5 basic elements of shape and combine them to create realistic drawings. Join us as we host the Monart Drawing Studio Exhibit during the month of August in the Front Room.
