Fall Membership Show Critique
Jack Benny Center, 7:00

This year's Fall Membership Show will conclude with a closing critique of 32 entries on the evening of November 20 in the Benny Center theatre. The public is invited and members are encouraged to bring a friend. The critique will be from 7:00 to 9:00 pm with a 20-minute break for refreshments and conversation. Tom Trausch, a veteran of these critiques, will do that again. He is a full-time artist and art teacher based in Woodstock, and has taught many of us in his workshops. Visit his website at www.trauschfinearts.com to get a sense of his artistic scope and philosophy.

The Fall Membership Show was rehung on Saturday October 14, and is ready for viewing. If you have ever wondered why we must “rehang” our show, note that 24 pieces were submitted at the Saturday October 7 check-in, and an additional 8 pieces were added in the following week. Initially a membership show is pretty miscellaneous and a little confusing. We rehang it as a unified presentation that showcases our best work at this moment in our respective art journeys. A catalogue of the show is attached to the newsletter.
Be sure to visit the show and enjoy the current work of our membership before the November 20 closing critique.

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.
