Spring Student Art at Three Crowns Park
Story and photos by Heidi Randhava

The Spring Student Art Exhibit opened in the McDaniel Courts Gallery at Three Crowns Park, 2323 McDaniel Ave., with a reception on March 8. The exhibit runs through April 8 and features art work by students at Lincolnwood Elementary School and Haven Middle School.

Lincolnwood’s second-grade students created Gyotaku prints, using rubber fish and tempera paints, adding bubble wrap bubbles and seaweed. Gyotaku, or Japanese fish printing, was originally used to record and commemorate a fisherman’s catch. This form of art is still utilized today and can be seen hanging in tackle shops in Japan and Okinawa.

Haven art students explore the power of color through oil pastel in “The Energy of Color: What a deep and mysterious language color creates, changes and reveals emotion. Color has energy. It has the power to influence the soul.”

Three Crowns Park residents Marie Chicki and Peggy Greifer are among those who are struck by the talent of the young Evanston artists.

“Their work is very impressive – and colorful.” said Ms. Chicki, who stopped to admire the work as she walked through the gallery.

“You really miss it when they take it down,” said Ms. Greifer.

Three Crowns Park is a retirement community that has thrived for more than a century in northwest Evanston.
