Potluck wishes to extend a big shout out to Stuart Meyer, who has an exhibit of downtown Naperville photography opening Saturday. "Portraits of Downtown" will be on display through July 28 at Art and Frame Naperville, 702 W. Fifth Ave. Admission is free and open to the public. Ten percent of exhibit-related sales proceeds will be donated to the Naperville Art League.
Meyer is creator of the World of Naperville blog, www.naperville.wordpress.com, and he writes about his town as the Naperville Examiner on Examiner.com
A reception for the "Portraits of Downtown" opening takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Art and Frame Naperville, www.artandframenaperville.com.
Check out his pictures, and you'll see that despite all the changes and new construction in downtown Naperville there are still some fine examples of late-19th and early 20th century architecture to be found.
What's your favorite example of architecture in Naperville? The old city hall-turned-La Sorella di Francesca? Buildings at the corner of Jefferson & Washington? Maybe you like more modern fare, outside of downtown (not featured in the exhibit), like the "N" building by the tollway. Hey, even the Riverwalk counts as architecture. Maybe there's a private residence you particularly admire. Tell us about it, and why you like it.
