Trees Close Up: Botanical Watercolors by Barbara Rose

  • Oak Park Public Library 834 Lake Street Oak Park, IL, 60301 United States (map)

This is the opening reception for an exhibition that will take place throughout the month of October, from the 2nd to the 30th.

These paintings pay homage to common native trees in our urban forest. Most are larger than life studies of buds, blossoms and seeds—miraculous moments in a process where sun, wind and water interact with the wisdom encoded in trees to perpetuate life.

Paintings are transparent watercolor on Fabriano Artistico paper. Sales proceeds will be donated to the non-profit West Cook Wild Ones with commissions to the library.
