Sixty artists display work in the Summer Member Show presented by the Elmhurst Artists' Guild, where a reception is planned Friday evening. The EAG gallery at the Elmhurst Art Museum will include landscapes, portraits and abstract works, most for sale. A portion of the proceeds benefit EAG and the Elmhurst Art Museum.

The organization notes that most EAG members work professionally in the art world.

Elmhurst artists Jim Dahle and Terry Johnson are just two of the members featured. Dahle's mixed-media oil painting, titled "Don't Leave Thirsty," features zebras in duplication. Johnson's colorful acrylic painting is titled "It's Still Rock 'N' Roll to Me (Side B)."
