"Portraits of American Veterans Project" on Exhibit at two Venues for November

Ela Area Public Library Exhibit


Shah Center McHenry County College Exhibit.

I am showing the Portraits of American Veterans Project Exhibit at the following venues during the month on November. I am honored that my art work is on view in public places where the public is free to spend time looking at the paintings and reflecting on their stories. I have chosen to exhibit the paintings and provide an opportunity for the visual dialogue to emerge from the painting itself without additional descriptive text. I believe this allows more time for the viewer to look and consider their own personal experiences and stories.

I will present an Artist Talk with a Powerpoint program at each exhibit venue. I have found the presentation to be a powerful way to share the personal stories of each of the veterans. Thus the stories and paintings become a living oral history project that elicits participants to revisit their stories and share the experiences of the veterans in their families and communities.
