Painting Receives "Award of Excellence"


Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oakbrook hosts Illinois Watercolor Society's member show the first show of the new year. Fifty-two paintings span the walls in the main lobby and side rooms. Among them is

 "Fructus mysticalus II", displaying a playful bunch of grapes between the legs of a naked torso. It is a continuation of the "Sober Madness" series of works exploring intoxication, sensuality, and madness. It acts as the first of many compliments to "Fructus mysticalus I" currently exhibiting in the Oesterle Library Gallery on the campus of North Central College in Naperville.


The guest judge for the show is Phyllis Kozlowski, an adjunct faculty member at Elmhurst College in the Art History department. She awarded the "Award of Excellence" to "Fructus..." and will be present for the reception on March 1st at 6 pm. The show is open to the public until that date and attendance is highly encouraged. Please come to this wonderful venue and support the other talented watercolorists from your local area!
