Starting March 13, Flourish Lounge, 193 N. Marion St., will feature art from Chicago Tribune cartoonist and Oak Parker Joe Fournier. 

Titled "Musicians as Songbirds," the installation has 18 pieces in a variety of media, from acrylic and ink on canvas and paper to collage to a hanging sculpture.

Fournier has had his award-winning work shown at the Cannes Film Festival, the National Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress. He is also an avid saxophone player.

An opening reception will be held on March 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. Flourish Lounge and Fournier invite the public to view the art, meet the artist and enjoy complimentary wine and appetizers. 

To RSVP, contact Flourish Lounge public relations representative, Jenny Shepherd, at jenny@jennyshepherdpr.com or 312-919-4804.
