Renowned artist Michael Blaser will unveil an original oil painting this Friday evening at the Dearborn Country Club. The painting depicts a scene of the Aurora, Indiana waterfront as it would have looked in the 1950s.
Well-known for his representations of rivers, lakes and maritime scenes, Blaser’s evocative art work draws in the viewer with lifelike details and a keen eye for historical perspective. The Aurora painting showcases a view from the river looking toward the small town, with a car ferry and other watercraft set against a backdrop of Aurora’s historic architecture and many church steeples.
The September 19 Artist’s Reception will take place from 6-9pm at Dearborn Country Club, which is located off St. Rd. 148 in Aurora. In addition to hors d'oeuvres compliments of the Country Club, the event will feature prints available for purchase and to be personalized by Michael Blaser. An after party will follow the reception at Woody's Bar and Grill at the Country Club, with dinner specials available.
