A show of drawings, mixed media pieces, and prints created by Lester Dore over 5 decades. Lester was part of the early Chicago Surrealist movement, a designer and illustrator for the Chicago Seed, In These Times, The Progressive, Salsedo Press, The Ocooch Mountain News, Heartland Journal and the Heartland Cafe, and a founder of Art Surge Madison. He has devoted much of his output over the last 50 years to peace and justice issues but also finds deep satisfaction in observation of the natural world.
