James L. Lockhart: Portraits in Nature I 11/21 - 1/31/2020

Called "the twentieth-century Audubon" by some, this show traces the life and work of Lake Forest resident James Leland Lockhart (1912-2005), one of America's foremost nature and wildlife artists. We see how his success as a commercial illustrator for leading national publications like The Saturday Evening Post and Sports Afield allowed him to draw attention to the plight of wild creatures and granted him a platform as a voice in the burgeoning conservation movement. With selections spanning the entirety of his career, we have a unique look at the development--and consistency--of an artist over time.

Various pieces in the show are for sale as well as beautiful 2020 Lockhart nature calendars, Lockhart prints and themed note cards.
