BATAVIA – Four local artists will have their artwork displayed in a show entitled "A Flair for Painting- Presented by Four Dynamic Artists" through Aug. 25 at Covenant Living at the Holmstad in Batavia.

According to a news release from the senior living community, all the artists share a passion for the oil pastel medium. The artists have varying creative backgrounds, but became friends while taking oil pastel classes together at the Fine Line in St. Charles. While they share in the use of the oil pastel medium, their styles are unique and dynamic, the release stated.

The four artists are: Deann Alleman, a resident at Covenant Living at the Holmstad, who finds inspiration in the natural world to create her quiet and somewhat subtle impressionistic paintings; Carol Kazwick, from Downers Grove, who often uses hand-made paper and other unique backgrounds for her paintings reflecting the beauty and history of the Midwest; Lillian Pagni, from Hampshire, who will show her charming animal portraits; and Fran Stilwagner, of Geneva, who uses nature to create her impressionistic and somewhat abstract paintings. All are members of the Yellow House Artists, a group of Chicago area artists who work in oil pastel.

The public is invited to see the art, which is showcased at Covenant Living at the Holmstad Town Center Gallery. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Aug. 25. There is an artists’ reception from 3 to 5 p.m. on July 27 where those who attend can meet the artists. The four will also host a special gallery walk and demo presentation from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 1.

Both events are free and are at Covenant Living at the Holmstad, located at 700 W. Fabyan Parkway in Batavia. For more information call 630-879-4261.
