A retrospective show of oil paintings by Evanston artist Peggy Lipschutz about family, social activism, women and spirituality created over 70 years will be held at Noyes Cultural Center’s Second  Floor Gallery, 927 Noyes St., from Oct. 4 through Nov. 1.

Ms. Lipschutz is a uniquely creative and prolific Evanston artist who pioneered the performance art of the “chalk-talk” or the drawing of songs performed live by folk musicians such as Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Holly Near.

During a lengthy career, Ms. Lipschutz also produced cartoons and drawings for labor, political and social organizations. She created, and continues to create, sensitive, reflective and thoughtful oil paintings. There will be a free opening reception from 2 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 4 in the gallery.

The exhibit was curated by Jerri Zbiral. Admission to the Noyes Gallery is free and open to the public.
