Patterson’s paintings create narratives with collected objects, collective memory, and a nod to art history. While the objects are chosen for their color, their placement results in relationships that suggest complex human relationships, archetypes and messages. The series was created in Mexico City and many of the rich cultural traditions of Mexico can be seen in the work. 

Patterson, born in Illinois, is currently the Chair of Fine Arts at Loyola Academy. She worked and painted in Mexico City for the last 25 years and has a new studio in Evanston.

Opening Reception: Sunday April 7, 2 – 4 PM
Exhibition: March 30 – April 27 2024

Amber Keene is an art teacher in Northbrook. Her background includes a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Art Education From University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Art Education from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

“I am in constant awe of the beauty that can be found in this world we live in. As an artist I try to capture that feeling of inspiration, using oils and a mixed media approach. My landscape paintings are a result of my travels in the U.S. and abroad and the pieces in my self-portrait series consist of resin, oils, and collaged images from nature. The photo portraits were taken by photographer Bill Furlong, resulting in a beautiful collaboration between two artists.”

Opening Reception | February 23, 6 PM

Exhibition | February 6 – February 29, 2024

Gallery Hours | Tuesday – Friday 10 AM – 5 PM | Saturday 10 AM – 1 PM

Created as a not-for-profit community venture, the Old Town Art Center operates under the guidance of the Old Town Triangle Association. The Center plays host to gallery shows, provides year-round art classes, and offers lectures and workshops. The Gallery is named after local artist and community advocate, Leslie Wolfe, who was dedicated to the arts and artists. Her passion is reflected in the selection of emerging and established artists who are selected to exhibit.

Well, now’s your chance! Please join us at the Old Town Triangle on Thursday, April 13, 2023, at 5:30 pm, for the perfect pairing as we venture to southern France with Mike Baker, Advanced Sommelier / Director of Wine at Vin Chicago, a family-run wine boutique since 1934 (that’s right, opening one year after Prohibition). This tasting will feature six wines from the region, an interactive, informational presentation with a take-home sheet/map, as well as games and light bites…oh, and more wine afterwards! Sponsored by the Events Committee, each ticket is $25. Please save your spot today, as space is limited.
