Paintings Then and Now by Doris Chorny

May 4 - May 29

Doris Chorny has a BA and MA in Studio Art and Art History and studied with Theodore Halkin at Northwestern University. She works from nature,intrigued by underlying structures and surface shadows. 

Besides landscapes the exhibit of oil paintings includes some still lifes and portraits.

"Being a ‘some time’ painter  over many decades, it has been interesting to observe how, when I get back to work, I pick up where I left off adding  what for me is the next stylistic development. Part of the joy of painting and what draws me back to it is the experience of seeing so much more than I otherwise would."
