"Don Lake: A Watercolor Retrospective," a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings by local artist Don Lake, will open June 17 at Giertz Gallery at Parkland College.

The exhibit runs through Aug. 8. The reception on Thursday, June 20 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. features a gallery talk by Lake at 6:30 p.m. with opening remarks by Parkland President Dr. Tom Ramage and music by The Derick Cordoba Trio. Lake will provide an additional lecture on Tuesday, June 25, at 6 p.m. in lecture hall C118. A gallery walkthrough with commentary by faculty artist Gisele Atterberry will occur on Tuesday, July 23 at noon.

A master of transparent watercolor, Lake has produced a body of realistic paintings that share an inclination towards complex patterns, texture, and plays of light and dark. His works feature landscapes, seasonal changes, and industrial sites. Of his pieces, Lake says, "I look for views that are unexpected and, perhaps until I have recorded them in a painting, uninspected. Sometimes I walk along hoping to find a distinctive view, but really, the view finds me."
