The following two events shine the light on District 98 Art Teacher, Charlie De Leonardis, who also happens to be on the Berwyn Art Council.
1st Art show
A group called Arts Dining is hosting this event. Arts Dining strives to benefit local charities and artists alike! Rustic organic meals and minimal decor combined with local art to benefit area charities.
I was invited to showcase some work!
The Arts Dining show will be on May 16th, 2010. Appetizers start at 6pm and the evening will end around 9pm.

...Charlie was asked to make 3 pieces based on the composers, the orchestra and the event itself. It's going to be great! Good music, good people and ART!
