Here are just a few of the many reasons to attend tonight’s Nature Artists’ Guild program from 7 until 9 pm at the Thornhill Education Center of The Morton Arboretum –
- Dale Olsen’s Landscapes. Once you’ve seen Dale’s landscapes online, you will very likely want to see them in person as well. As gorgeous as they are in photographs, the actual paintings will be even more so! Here’s an opportunity to see them up close and learn about Dale’s methods and inspirations.
- Postcards and Posters. Members and guests are encouraged to take some posters and postcards for the Spring Exhibition of Natural History Art taking place on the weekend of April 7 and 8, 2018, share them with friends and family, and post them in local businesses. The postcards will have information about the artists’ reception on Friday evening, April 6, when guests can gain entrance to the Arboretum to attend the exhibit with no gate fee. A digital version will be distributed to members soon.
- Diptych Canvases. Members who would like to participate in a fundraising project for the spring exhibit by painting a small diptych can pick up their canvases at the meeting. The finished canvases will be sold at the exhibit and all proceeds will go to the Guild to be used in furthering its mission.
- Fall into Winter Artwork. Many of the industrious members of the Nature Artists’ Guild have been busy all fall and winter creating montages from nature. The results are posted here, but members will also be sharing their artwork at tonight’s meeting. It’s a chance to see the details that often make nature art so wonderful.
- Fun and Food. As always, there will be snacks, sweets and drinks. There will be some time to chat with friends, old and new. Guests and visitors are welcome to attend, and there is no fee for parking, attendance or admission to The Morton Arboretum for this event. Visitors can let the gate attendant know they are there for the program and they will be directed to Thornhill.
