The Northwest Cultural Council will host an Artist's Reception and Poetry Reading on Saturday July 17, 2010 from 1:00 to 3:00pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

The artist's reception and poetry reading will be held at the Arlington Green Executive Centre located at 2101 S. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, IL.

I will be attending the artist's reception and am looking forward to the opportunity to meet both those interested in my art as well as the other artists.

Unlike my last art exhibit at the Arlington Green Executive Centre Gallery, which consisted solely of abstract computer art, this time my works are space art and astronomical art.

The art exhibit is a part of the Northwest Cultural Council Corporate Gallery Exhibition Program. The Northwest Cultural Council's Corporate Gallery Exhibits reflect a wide variety of media, artistic expression and vision of the artists. Artists with work on display in the art exhibit are:

Betty Morley Arlington Heights
Mirella Scully Mount Prospect
Min Ja Lah Schaumburg
Carl Jalowiec Palatine
Beverly Miotke Roselle
Claire Vogt Wally Barrington
Gail Baar Buffalo Grove
Joan Brinkworth Arlington Heights
Jim Plaxco Schaumburg
Irene Oleksiuk North Barrington
William Dunn Arlington Heights
Robert Cobb Rolling Meadows
Deanna Goldberg Buffalo Grove

The art currently on exhibit at the Arlington Green Executive Centre will remain on display through August 2, 2010. The art can be viewed Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

All art in the exhibit is for sale with a percentage of the sale price being a tax-deductible donation to support the activities of the Northwest Cultural Council, a not-for-profit community agency bringing visual art, music, dance, theater, poetry, and their unique "Kids Meet Art" program to the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

In addition to the art exhibit and the artist's reception, there will be a poetry reading. Poets reading their work at the reception are:

Angela Narciso Torres Glenview
Kathleen Kirk Normal
Patricia McMillen Oak Park
Virginia Bell Evanston
Steven Schroeder Chicago
Maureen Flannery Evanston
Susanna Lang Chicago
Helen Degen Cohen Deerfield
Deborah Nodler Rosen Glencoe

So if you're in the northwest suburbs and are looking for something to do, I suggest checking out the Northwest Cultural Council's Artist's Reception And Poetry Reading.

The Art – Photoshop Abstract Whirlpool

Titled Photoshop Abstract Whirlpool, I created this piece this morning to serve as the illustration for this post. Strange to believe that I used as a starting point a photograph I took of baggage transport carriages at O'Hare Airport. The final piece seen here was created by using a combination of Photoshop filters, layer blends, layer styles, and adjustment layers. Isn't digital wonderful!
