Northbrook's Erin Kaya Art At YMCA
The GBN alum has her work on display in the YMCA's community gallery throughout March.
“For the past 15 years I have traveled throughout Europe, Turkey, Israel, Africa and the majority of the U.S. states," Kaya said in a press release. "During my travels I was introduced to old and new artistic methods that shaped me into the artist I am today."
Kaya's work includes large, colorful, abstract, oil paintings. She also makes photographs with marbling — a painting technique using oil floating in water.
The art displayed at the YMCA is on sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the YMCA's Visual Arts Department.
“We are so pleased with the quality and variety of artists scheduled to exhibit here this year,” NSYMCA Visual Arts Director Cathy Winnie said in a press release. “This adds a beautiful element to our newly-renovated facility and shows our young artists what dedication to the arts can lead to.”
Abstract painter Leo Benvenuti will be the next exhibitor in April. For more information about the Community Art Gallery, contact Cathie Winnie at (847) 272-7250.
