The current exhibit at the Barrington Area Library is a display of instantly recognizable images and places: Buckingham Fountain, Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, The Chicago Theater and the Barrington Area Library itself. The exhibit consists of black and white photorealistic paintings by Bruno Vanoudenhove. The public is invited to meet the artist and see his work at an artist's reception 7 p.m. Friday, May 14.

He attended both drawing and painting workshops locally at Harper College. His exhibit at the Barrington Area Library includes 23 of his paintings depicting landmarks and architecture in the area. His work will be on display at the Barrington Area Library through Saturday, June 19.
