Price gallery showing rescheduled after snow

R.M. Granet & Co. will host the opening of new exhibit, “Art as Elegy: The Works of John Price” tonight, Nov. 27, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The opening, originally scheduled for Nov. 20, was delayed following snow.

The event showcases about 25 pieces from the Price estate in Chicago, now for sale in Charles City. Price, who lived from 1919 to 2000, was a naturalist and painter who served four years of military service abroad before completing formal training at the Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University and Columbia University, where he received his doctorate in 1965.

Much of his work was created during his career as an educational admin-istrator and high school principal, R.M. Granet & Co. said in a press release, and he eventually served as an editorial consultant for college textbooks and illustrator for technical handbooks.

The gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 1110 North Grand Avenue.
