The David Adler Music and Arts Center has been working with The Lake County Art League for an exhibition, “By Invitation”. The Adler Center recognizes the great breadth of talent The Lake County Art League presents in their Fall Membership Show at the Jack Benny Center. This year Adler representatives previewed the show, found the potential for a two-week landscape and scenery exhibit, and selected artists to invite and feature.
The artists included:
Anne Anderson, Gail Basner, Jackei Carmichael, Kathy Broxton, and Barbara Rogers.
Anne Anderson is an Illinois artist, formerly a graphic designer and now a painter. As a child she attended classes at the Art Institute of Chicago and continued her art education at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, the College of Lake County in Grayslake and Barat College in Lake Forest. She also had the privilege of studying with David R. Becker, MWS, who helped her develop her individual painting style.
Gail Basner - Gail is a native of the Chicago area and was born and raised in a family of artisans. Her father was a designer and engraver of decorative fine hardware, and her mother was an accomplished artist in oils. Gail attended classes at the Art Institute of Chicago as a child to develop her natural talent as an artist, and she majored in art throughout her formal education. She was side-tracked with little spare time for art during her working career. After retirement in 1997 she has thrown herself into her passion for watercolors.
Jackie Carmichael received her art education from Memphis Academy of Art, Highland Park and the Deerpath Art League. She has exhibited at Anderson Art Center, Kenosha North Shore Art League, Winnetka Art Center and the Highland Park Jack Benny Center in Waukegan. She is also published in “East on Central.”
Kathy Broxton is a watercolor artist who has studied with many local artists at the David Adler Music and Arts Center, Suburban Fine Arts Center and Deerpath Art League. She has transferred this learning in composition, design, and color to her photography, and enjoys exploring this exciting medium.
Barbara Rogers is a portrait artist, but does landscapes in pastel. She is a member of the Lake County Art League and the Deerpath Art League. She studied with Bob Gordon, Richard Halstead, Alex Belov, Steve Ulrich, David Abed, Linda Kollacks, and Ben Jurecivius. Her reward is in the doing, but it’s nice when the results are pleasing.
The exhibit, "A Taste of Nature: Landscape and Scenery at the David Adler Music and Arts Center" will be on display from February 8 - 23.
Come to the opening reception February 8, 7:00 - 9:00 to view the art, speak with the artists and enjoy food and wine!
It is free and open to the public! Call 847-367-0707 with any questions!
