June and July at the Jack Benny Center.....


June: New Member Carol Fink Sackschewsky, Watercolorist
Exhibition at the Jack Benny Center for the Arts, continuing through June 26
The Artist Reception will be Sunday June 23. 1:30-4:30 pm, “an afternoon with the artist and friends of the Arts.” Carol is showing14 pieces.

July: Member Leslie Scott, Scratch Art
Les has had a number of exhibits in the area, and decided not to have an artist reception here. Leslie “Les” Scott grew up observing the natural world. To make a living he studied and became a graphic artist in the commercial world, but has now returned to those memories. Here he shares them using the little-known medium of Scratchboard. We certainly see Les’ artistic insights, but more than that he wants us to sense the creative potential of the medium. Scratching black ink from the surface of a white clay board may seem as simply the reverse of penning black ink on white paper, but in Les’ hands that has yielded nuanced expression and opened doors for an artistic journey far beyond graphic arts. Come see his work.





The purpose of this League is to create more interest in art in Lake County, Illinois and to develop a higher appreciation of visual art. It shall do this through art exhibitions, festivals, demonstrations of art techniques, lectures, critiques and sharing of ideas, inspiration and encouragement between members.
