“Lake Metroparks through Paint & Canvas"



Indian Point Park - James Polewchak 
Opens Saturday, March 19 in the Nature Center at Penitentiary Glen Reservation
Artist Jim Polewchak is a life-long Lake County resident who grew up playing in many of the green areas that have since become part of Lake Metroparks. See your park system come to life through the medium of oil painting in this special one-man show. “You really see the park for what it is and notice things that others just pass by," says Polewchak, reflecting on his hours spent painting in the parks. "Many of the parks are near and dear to my heart because I grew up here and as a child I would roam and play in the woods. I still do!" Jim’s artwork is available for purchase; proceeds benefit the Penitentiary Glen Nature Center.

Meet and talk with Jim Polewchak at a free, informal reception on Saturday, March 19 from noon to 4 pm. Enjoy light refreshments and art demonstrations.

Artwork available for purchase; proceeds benefit the Penitentiary Glen Nature Center.
