GEL NEWS: Glen Ellyn Snackery to Exhibit Scenes of Glen Ellyn Photography

Glen Ellyn Photos Exhibited by Erik R Peterson

Bells & Whistles Snackery will unveil a new photo exhibition beginning Friday, November 13 from 7pm to 10pm. The Scenes of Glen Ellyn exhibition features Glen Ellyn photographs by local resident Erik Peterson.

Tracey Kreiling owner of Bells & Whistles is excited about Peterson’s exhibition at Bells & Whistles. “I love Erik’s photography especially the Holiday Walk image. He has a great eye for documenting life in Glen Ellyn.” In 2008 Kreiling helped organize the Madonnari Off Main project which presented European chalk artists in downtown Glen Ellyn for 2 straight years.

The Village of Glen Ellyn recently installed a series of canvas prints by Peterson in the Galligan Boardroom. “We are very excited about this installation,” said Steve Jones, village manager. “It has transformed the boardroom into a more energetic space and reflects the positive community spirit that exists in Glen Ellyn.”

Village President Mark Pfefferman commented on Peterson’s loan of his artwork, “if pictures say 1000 words, these say volumes about what’s great about life in Glen Ellyn.”
Peterson’s photography has appeared in local community magazines. Peterson exhibited his photography publically for the first time in August at the 40th Festival of the Arts held at Lake Ellyn in Glen Ellyn.

Last fall Peterson took a panoramic image of the Glen Ellyn Holiday Walk which was his first attempt at capturing a large community event. “That image has resonated with so many residents and business owners,” Peterson said. “I’m excited that my photography has had a positive affect on others.”

Beginning November 13 a large collection of Peterson’s photography will be on display at Bells & Whistles Snackery. Private receptions are planned for Friday, November 13 and Friday, December 11. To register for the reception click here.
