Now, at Wicker Park’s Eyeporium Gallery, 1431 N. Milwaukee, you can find original art for those rec room walls, specifically at tonight’s opening reception for Sandra Hart, who paints in watercolors using scenes of nature and everyday life as her inspiration.
Hart is a member of the Plein Air Painters of Chicago and a flight attend who paints en plein aire whenever possible, according to a press release issued by the Gallery, which will feature “Ascensions,” a body of Hart’s work, beginning tonight, Friday, July 6th.
An opening reception will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. The gathering is free, open to the public, and presumably air conditioned, so pop by if you can. “Ascensions” runs through August 1st, 2012.
