An opening reception on Sunday, April 9, at Evanston’s Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St., will herald “Stories in Images and Words,” an exhibition that will be on display through May 24.

The April 9 reception, scheduled for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., is free and open to the public and will feature music by a jazz trio from Evanston Township High School.

Featured artists in the exhibition include Susan Gundlach and Lea Basile Lazuras.


Susan Gundlach’s poetry is a mixed-media assemblage of words, memories, observations, and questions. Her reflections on neighborhood goings-on, seasonal rhythms, personal or fictional moments, or the why’s and what-if’s of existence elegantly unfurl in her poems.

Lea Basile Lazarus’ artwork is inspired by forms in nature, the human form, and man-made architectural shapes. Through contemporary printmaking techniques, she combines shapes, colors, and textures with shadows and other photographic images to create visual moments. Together these elements create a unified and meaningful composition.

Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
