Artist: Staff of the Glenview Library
The Glenview Library has a talented group of needlework artists among its staff. Quilting and stitching have evolved into an expressive art form, connecting the heart and soul of those who create the works with those who use them. Cherished pieces are often passed down from generation to generation. In the spirit of the holiday season, these creative staff artisans are honored to share their work with their community through this quilt and needlework exhibition.
January 11–March 15
Artist: Kathleen Eaton
Gallery Talk: Sunday, February 12, 1:15 PM • Library Lobby
Kathleen Eaton is a Chicago area artist whose work is an interpretation of city and suburban life. Her art reflects a fascination with architectural spaces and the unexpected solitude or human activities that occur in them. The paintings begin with an idea of a place, real or imaginary, and then proceed, by a series of sketches, to full-sized drawings, from which the final oil paintings emerge.
Over the years, the Friends of the Glenview Library have not only contributed more than a million dollars to the Library, they also have given artwork for designated Library locations and have donated from their own collections. When you enter the Library from the underground garage, take notice of Field Scene. This colorful, evocative painting by David W. Voros was commissioned in 1986 to hang behind the Circulation Desk in the old Library. Treasures from the past have been recently installed in the Community Room. The Navajo rug and two Native American portraits were gifts from the Louann Van Zelst family. Age dimmed their beauty, but they now have been restored by the Friends (see page 11 for photos). These three pieces help us remember our country’s first settlers and the beauty and craftsmanship of Native American handiwork for everyday use. The next time you attend a Library program, make sure to view these stunning works.
