Painter Laura Coyle Returns to YMCA Community Gallery with Water-Themed Exhibit
A new show of vibrant paintings by Laura Coyle opens in March at North Suburban YMCA's Community Gallery. The public is invited to a reception for Ms. Coyle on Sunday, March 8th from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the North Suburban YMCA, located at 2705 Techny Rd. in Northbrook.
Ms. Coyle has exhibited at the Y several times, each time with work that is different in style, medium and imagery with the exception of one common thread: water. "Water is vital to sustain life and yet can be very destructive. It is both beautiful and terrible," commented Coyle. "We in Illinois are so fortunate to have Lake Michigan or "Lady" Michigan, as I call her in our lives. She has many moods and colors."
Ms. Coyle has been a professional fine artist and graphic designer for over 20 years. Her work has been shown in solo and group shows both nationally and throughout the Chicago area. The art in the YMCA show is for sale, with a portion of the purchase price benefitting the North Suburban YMCA's Visual Arts Program.
The North Suburban YMCA's Community Galleries support the local arts community by presenting free public exhibitions of work by artists from the northern suburbs. The Y also offers a wide variety of art classes and studio space available to all ages. For more information, visit NSYMCA.org.
