Yesterday I attended a Northwest Cultural Council Artists' Reception at the Arlington Green Executive Center in Arlington Heights IL. The site is one of the locations that participates in the Northwest Cultural Council's Corporate Gallery program. I should point out that I am one of the artists participating in this program and will have a new exhibition opening in a week at the Greater Woodfield Chicago Northwest Convention Bureau in Schaumburg IL.

This artist's reception was hosted for the one artist and two photographers whose work is now on display at Arlington Green. The artist is Barbara Burt of Warrenville IL who is a paper artist. The two photographers are Jennifer Styrsky of La Grange Park IL and Gary Swiontek of Arlington Heights IL.

As I looked through the art and photographs exhibited I was looking for ideas. Something that would give me a creative "ah-ha". While I very much enjoyed many of the works being exhibited, I unfortunately did not have the "ah-ha" moment that I was looking for.

I spent some time indulging in the free food and drink and speaking with the three artists/photographers. I also spoke with Kathy Umlauf, the executive director of the Northwest Cultural Council. Sensing that my son was getting antsy (I had exercised parental power in making him come along with me), I cut my stay short and we headed off on the next leg of our journey – a visit to the local Barnes and Noble to catch up on news of the art world.
