Juror for: “Nature’s Palette” an exhibit at Emily Oaks Nature Center

Here are selections from the 2012 Skokie Art Guild Members Exhibit, which I  juried. The Exhibit is called: “Nature’s Palette,” and is on exhibit at the Emily Oaks Nature Center, in Skokie, March 9th – April 20th.  I particularly enjoyed the breath of mediums that were represented in the exhibit, which included oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastel, mixed media and ceramics. I’ve also included a pic of the Emily Oak Nature Center Grounds. Hover over the images for the artist’s info and click on the images for a larger view.
