Artist Nick Bridge: "Guatemalan Sojourn"

Sunday, June 5, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Meet Oak Park artist Nick Bridge and see his exhibit, Guatemalan Sojourn. The exhibit will continue in the Oak Park Public Library Art Gallery through Wednesday, June 29.

A common concern throughout Nick Bridge's work has been light, regardless of media or genre. "My desire to paint has manifested itself in exploration of the textures and juxtapositions of the urban landscape, remnants of our native prairie, the imagery of popular culture, still life and the human figure," notes Bridge.
