Please join fellow members of the Nature Artists’ Guild at the Elmhurst Art Museum, 150 Cottage Hill Avenue, Elmhurst, Illinois, this Friday evening, May 4, 2012, at 6:30 pm for an Artist’s Talk by renowned nature artist Peggy Macnamara. Click here to see Peggy on the television show Chicago Tonight a few days ago!
Peggy is the Artist-in-Residence at the Field Museum, an author of numerous books, and a frequent instructor for The Morton Arboretum’s Botanical Art and Illustration program. Peggy’s former workshop students will attest to her warm and fun personality, as well as her fascinating and funny stories!
Peggy’s exhibition at the Elmhurst Art Museum (named the “Best Suburban Art Museum in Chicago” by Chicago Magazine), is titled “Peggy Macnamara: Field Work“, and will be featured from April 6, 2012 until June 1, 2012. Even if you can’t join us on Friday evening, you’ll still have time to visit the museum to enjoy Peggy’s stunning watercolors.
The program is free and open to the public, so please feel free to bring some friends! We are hoping to find a good restaurant nearby to meet at for snacks or dessert after the program.
