Plainfield native in Chicago art show this weekend

Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood hosts an annual Art Walk.

Alexa Storch, daughter of Plainfield Councilor Cory Storch and his wife Lois Mattson will be showing her paintings this weekend at Chicago's Lincoln Park Art Walk. (I am also Alexa's godfather.)

Alexa, who moved from Plainfield to Chicago this past spring, is one of seventeen artists showing in the annual juried art showcase. The artists live in the geographically defined Lincoln Park neighborhood and work in a variety of mediums. Works are displayed in a number of venues throughout the neighborhood and identified in the walk-around brochure.

An exhibition of the best of show pieces is displayed at Dank Haus, a German cultural center in the neighborhood.

You can see a brochure from the event (and leave words of encouragement) on Alexa's Facebook page (here).

In case you are thinking of jetting out for a peek, bear in mind that President Obama is also slated to be in the Lincoln Park neighborhood for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Sunday.
