Calling All Artists
Bridgeview Bank is hosting an event called Artists Among Us which will be held on the evening of Thursday, November 12th at their branch on 79th St. and Harlem, in Bridgeview. The event is designed to give exposure to local artists from Bridgeview and the surrounding communities, including Berwyn, by allowing them to display several pieces of their artwork (painting, sculptures, etc.) at the branch during the entire week leading up to the event and of course at the actual event itself.
The City Treasurer, who works at the bank, was asked if he knew any local artists in the Berwyn area that would be interested in participating. The bank would love to have one or two artists from Berwyn. Of course, there would be no cost to the artists to display their work and the event is open and free for everyone. The artists are also allowed to sell their art if they want to do so.
The bank will take care of sending out invitations, and if the artists want to invite people they can send a list of names/addresses and will be included in the invitation list. The bank will invite many of its customers so there should be a good crowd the night of the event. The Treasurer believes that the bank will have wine/refreshments at the event as well.
Please contact Joe Kroc, the Berwyn City Treasurer, if you or any other artist you know may be interested in the event? If so, Joe will put you in touch with the event organizer who can give more details.
