A Beautiful Day marks Arts of Life North Shore artist Amanda Gantner’s first solo exhibition. Hosted by Linz & Vail in Evanston, IL, the show focuses on a collection of never before seen pastel drawings. A modern impressionist, Gantner’s work eliminates the finer details while focusing on the suggestion of form- achieving great effects of naturalness and immediacy. With depictions on her fondest travels and longings for life on sandy shores, it is difficult to experience Gantner’s work without having a sense of a moment in time full of beauty and excitement; along with a pining for that moment to never cease. However long it lasts, it will certainly add something beautiful to your day. A Beautiful day runs for the entire month of October featuring an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, October 24th from 6-8pm at Linz & Vail (2012 Central Street, Evanston, IL 60201). The reception will also include an intimate acoustic performance by Van Go Go.
