ART IN THE LIBRARY

Urbanscape: The City As I See It

Through March 15
Artist: Kathleen Eaton, eatonart.com

Kathleen Eaton is a Chicago area artist whose work is an interpretation of city and suburban life. Her art reflects a fascination with architectural spaces and the unexpected solitude or human activities that occur in them. The paintings begin with an idea of a place, real or imaginary, and then proceed, by a series of sketches, to full-sized drawings, from which the final oil paintings emerge.

Portraits of People I Will Never Know

Thursday, March 16–Wednesday May 17 • Library Lobby
Artist: Larry Simon, larrysimon.net
Gallery Talk: Wednesday, April 12, 6:15 PM • Library Lobby

Larry Simon takes his inspiration from seemingly everyday objects, surfaces, and scenes that are transformed into painterly short stories when given the chance. He often works with a blend of soft and sharp focus to create a composed narrative shrouded in a sense of the unknown: the Inner World that resides in our subconscious, a place where we cannot fill in all the blanks. Larry blends his instincts for street photography with his love of abstraction to tell compelling, often solitudinous tales through the lenses of his rangefinder camera, without zoom or tripod, and free of filters or post manipulation. He is mostly self-taught. A constant roamer, Larry Simon is based in Chicago.
