As you can see from the photos below, Mayslake Peabody Estate, 1717 W. 31st Street, Oak Brook, Illinois, was the location for one of the loveliest paint-outs of last year for the Nature Artists’ Guild. The weather was gorgeous, the historical home provided a stately background, the lake was picturesque, the flowers were in full bloom, and our Nature Artists’ Guild artists completed the scene that could have been taken right out of an Impressionist painting.
All Nature Artists’ Guild members are invited to attend this year’s wonderful gathering on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, from 9 am until noon. We especially encourage our newer members or members who have not previously attended paint-outs to attend. This would be a great no-pressure opportunity to try your hand at plein-air painting, sketching, or even photographing, and we think you’ll find your fellow Nature Artists’ Guild members to be friendly, helpful and encouraging.
There is plenty of room for all, so there is no need to RSVP, but if you have any questions, please contact Carol Jean Rogalski, whose contact information you can find in your Yearbook.
Thank you to our event photographer, Kathy Wagner-Selbach for these beautiful photos from last year’s event.
