Local Art @ EPL

On display June 2017:


“Tom’s Hike”

We are thrilled to welcome Edward Ravine back to the library for a brand-new Local Art @ EPL exhibit. After making his 2015 library debut, the Evanston painter has returned with Yield and Overcome – a fresh collection of gorgeous watercolors that embraces the words of the Tao Te Ching. Says Ravine, “To me it boils down to turning sorrow into kindness and fear into love. As I traveled to the Northwest, Utah, Southwestern Michigan and the sunrises each morning at our own Evanston Canal, I repeated the words [from the Tao Te Ching: 22], ‘Yield and overcome, be really whole and all things will come to you.’ I hope you have a quiet moment with the paintings I have shared.” You can catch this inspired show on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library through June 30, and you can meet Mr. Ravine at an opening reception on Sunday, June 4 at 2 pm. Don’t miss it!
