Prospect Heights environmental group stages art exhibition
The annual Prospect Heights Natural Resource Commission art exhibition at the Prospect Heights Public Library will be held from Tuesday, Sept. 3, through Sept. 30.
The monthlong library display in the library's lobby at 12 N. Elm St. will feature paintings, drawings, photographs and writings from Commissioners John Kamysz and Dana Sievertson and Chairwoman Agnes Wojnarski. The artwork depicts various scenes from native areas in Prospect Heights.
"Our paintings are inspired by the restoration sites we maintain throughout Prospect Heights and the surrounding areas," said Dr. John Kamysz. "It's a labor of love and a constant source of inspiration," said Commissioner Dana Sievertson.
A kickoff reception for the artists will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at the library. The artists will answer questions about their work and refreshments will be served.
