Seeking Berwyn Artists
Berwyn artists needed to display their art at an event in the Berwyn Depot District Business Association.
Will be called an "Overnite Art Gallery"? The idea behind it is to open and close an art gallery all in 1 day. This will be held at The Peace Center, 6833 Stanley.
So far, there are 8 Artists and hoping for a few more.
Jose, one of the proprietors of Over The Rainbow, hasI a request out to City Council to close the alley way behind the building so that we can have a wine bar and acoustic muscians play at the event.
The event is free to the Artists. All that is asked is that the artist be local from Berwyn. They'll also be free to sell any of their artwork. The date is Sunday 7/17 and its from 2p-8p.

Friday night, check out Horrorbles.
BERWYN (May 6th, 2011) – Exhibit opening night!
Horrorbles will be hosting in its “Galerie des Terrors” the artwork of Kimberly MacAulay from 7pm until 10pm.
Fascinated by humanity’s ability to survive though the most perilous times, Kimberly MacAulay’s paintings often deal with ideas of how despair is coupled with hope.
Through large-scale macabre work and small-scale figurative work, she addresses the psychology of human beings; How we perceive ourselves and how we react to others. Utilizing mostly muted colors and quiet energy, MacAulay’s paintings carry the feel of classical work with a modern twist.
Kimberly MacAulay received her BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 2005 and her MFA from the Academy of Art University in 2010. Her paintings have shown in group venues in Batavia, IL and Chicago, IL. She has exhibited in several charity events in San Francisco, has donated paintings to the International Reptile Conservation Foundation (IRCF) and regularly sets aside a percentage of sales for charities of her choice.
Kimberly will be on hand to greet & sign for attendees May 6, 2011, from 7 to 10 pm! Her works will be featured for the month of May!
