The North Suburban YMCA's Community Gallery will showcase the artwork of Northbrook-based painter/photographer Erin Kaya, beginning with an opening night reception on Friday, March 1 from 6:00 to 8:00. The public is invited to meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments while touring the exhibit, which will run through the month of March.
After earning a BFA from the University of Kansas, Kaya traveled throughout the world studying a broad range of artistic styles and methods. Her creations in the YMCA show feature a Turkish technique called marbling, in which she manipulates specially-formulated oil paints floating in water and then photographs the colorful abstract patterns that result.
The exhibit will feature approximately 30 works, most of which will be available for purchase. A portion of sale proceeds will benefit the North Suburban Y's Visual Arts Department.
The Erin Kaya show is one of a series of monthly art exhibits at the YMCA's Community Gallery, which supports the work of artists from the northern suburbs. For more information, contact Cathie Winnie, NSYMCA Visual Arts Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
