Landscape artists often overlook the Midwest. While perhaps generally not as dramatic as that of other parts of the country, there is a subtle beauty to the Midwest landscape, and it rewards those who spend time observing it. This is especially true of Lake County’s open lands. The photographs that comprise this exhibit are part of John Wylie's ongoing project to record that beauty. His hope is that having seen these photographs, viewers will take the time to enjoy the grace and quiet beauty of Lake County’s prairies, wetlands, lakes, and fields.


The exhibition runs from January 14–February 21 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 14, 1–3pm. At the opening reception, renowned author and naturalist, Joel Greenberg will join photographer John Wylie for a thought-provoking journey through the history of Chicago region landscapes. Greenberg will illuminate how these lands changed over the course of 300 years in his talk, "On Contested Ground."
