Opening Reception: Tues, Aug 18, 5 – 7pm
This exhibit features the paintings of two now-local artists. Mary Boylen has long had an interest in a variety of creative endeavors, but only honed in on watercolor painting about ten years ago, when she took a class in it from Marilyn Keating. Mary compliments Keating for teaching her to turn every “oops” into something worthwhile. Her passion for watercolor painting, especially of flowers, had been ignited.
Before moving to Northfield Bill Stromayer lived and worked in Chicago as a commercial artist. He worked at Kling Studio, whose clients included General Electric, Dobs Hats, Hart Shafner Marx and Morton Salt. At this studio, Bill was a co-developer of the Morton Salt girl. Bill has been painting equestrian subjects since the 1980’s.
