"Heartland Patterns" is the title of my featured exhibit at the Illinois Artisans Gallery in The Thompson Center, Chicago. Currently, 18 framed watercolors grace the front window and wall of the gallery that is located on the 2nd floor. There is also a large selection of matted works and note cards, including a limited edition card of the painting that is hanging in the window. The exhibit will be up thru September 12 and the gallery is opened weekdays from 9-5. I will be at the gallery on Friday, September 5, from noon to 4 working on some paintings and answering questions about my work.
