ANTIOCH – Artist Dennis Downes will have a free art show during April at Antioch Arts Center, 41380 Route 83.
The main body of Downes’ work has been inspired by research trips to ancient sites and to natural wonders across the Great Lakes region and beyond. Downes’ travels began at a young age, taking trips to visit his mother’s people, the Basque Berriochoa Clan, living in the Idaho and Montana Rocky Mountain area. His travels have inspired both his paintings and his sculptures. He currently works out of northeastern Illinois, as well as the Wilderness Coast of Ontario.
The Antioch Arts Center gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

is an absolute gem
When Ruby, a 7-year-old Jack Russell terrier, came to PAWS Chicago, she was having trouble walking and her symptoms rapidly worsened from there. After a consultation with a neurologist and PAWS veterinarians, Ruby was suspected to have a condition called coonhound paralysis. With a dedicated team of volunteers, she began physical therapy and has made amazing progress so far. Ruby spent time in a foster home where she was running, jumping and playing. For information on adopting Ruby, go to PAWS Chicago, Lincoln Park Adoption Center, 1997 N. Clybourn Ave. in Chicago, or pawschicago.org or call 773-935-PAWS (7297).
