Joey Wozniak, painter, whose exhibit "Urban Flowers" is now showing at the Eyeporium Gallery (1431 N. Milwaukee), heads out for:

Chicago's prairie gardens In the summer I find myself on my bike a lot, more looking for inspiration than the need for exercise. My rides have taken me over to two northwest-side parks. River Park at 5100 N. Francisco and Winnemac Park at Damen and Foster. Both have prairie gardens, or areas that have been let go back to a more natural state. I see these prairies as abstract paintings ready to be found, and I love the forms of the flowers themselves.
