The Peregrine Falcons of EPL


Falcon watchers rejoice!  Not only have Nona and Squawker just hatched the newest additions to their falcon family, but now they’re also the stars of a special photography exhibit by Ted Glasoe.  An award-winning Evanston artist, Glasoe has captured more than 3500 stunning images of our EPL falcons over the past five years, and for this must-see display, he selected the 10 shots that best “show the peregrine’s beauty, power, and personality.”  The exhibit runs until June 8th on the 2nd floor landing of EPL’s Main Library, and you can see even more of Glasoe’s work by visiting his website.  Don’t miss it!

Local Art @ EPL

Throughout the month of July EPL is pleased to present the work of Alice Dubois, the latest artist to be featured in our local artist exhibition series. Ms. Dubois’ colorful canvases draw inspiration from nature, literature, and music and combine various artistic styles into a striking, unique, and eerily beautiful whole. She lives and makes her art right here in Evanston, Illinois and has even been inspired by EPL’s family of peregrine falcons to make a brand new painting featured in her exhibit. You can see Ms. Dubois’ artwork throughout July on the 2nd Floor of the Evanston Public Library. And stay tuned to our Off the Shelf blog for an interview with the artist coming up later this month.
