I was pleased to learn that my painting of Botony Pond won first prize at the South Side Impressions Group Exhibit at the Beverly Art Center in Chicago. This cityscape painting is part of my series of art focused on the University of Chicago Quadrangle.
Midwest Regional Art: South Side Impressions Exhibit
The exhibit features regional art from the Midwest, especially Chicago’s South Side, and focuses on: “Artistic impressions of what the South Side means ... people, landmarks, nature, culture or attitudes and more. This exhibit aims to showcase the fascinating and diverse world of the South Side of Chicago.”
I was impressed by the diversity and quality of the art at this exhibit. Darrin Patton won 2nd prize for his painting, Sweet Home Chicago - Red River.
