Our current art exhibit in the Fireside Room features the photography of Glenn Shor and mixed media and more by Lynn Lazarus.  The show will be on view through August.  We welcome you to stop by and enjoy it.

Glenn writes: I am a man of few words.  Throughout my life, my camera has helped me get up close to life;  to share what strikes me as funny, beautiful and odd, … to what matters very deeply to me – all without having to use words.

Lynn writes:  I finally have the time to follow my own artistic instincts! Now that I am retired from teaching elementary school art for many years, I am trying to be as productive as possible.  And, possibly because I taught a smattering of many different ideas, materials, and mediums, I find myself drawn in many directions.

My work includes collages, and watercolors that I’ve done over time.  I also have started a series of paintings in oil, of a small village in southern Spain. The ghostly beauty of this town holds a special place in my heart.

Photography has been a family hallmark since my immigrant grandfather opened his studio in Chicago and started taking wedding and Bar Mitzvah photos. My photos are mostly of people that I’ve observed at work. They were taken close by in Chinatown, and on trips that Bill and I have taken to Sicily, Colombia and Guatemala in the past few years.
