In the month of May there were some amazing happenings! I was accepted into a show called “With Love we Conquer” at the Tye Johnson Gallery at the Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, IL. This is a big deal for me because this place is PACKED on the 3rd Friday of every month!! Tons of exposure! I have 2 pieces in this show AND one of my pieces (displayed above) was on the flyer.
I went to Nido Bianco in Three Oaks, Michigan with fellow artist Dawn Diamantopoulos for an Artist Trading Card swap and it was amazingly fun. We walked around and toured galleries in the area. We also have limited edition ATC pieces for sale in that gallery too, which consists of 9 matted pieces of our works. Contact the gallery for further information!
May 23rd and 24th was an exciting venture back out to Three Oaks, Michigan (becoming a fast favorite place) to Journeyman’s Distillery to sell my small works and jewelry at the Artisan Market. It was a nice event in a great venue with some pretty amazing people! I really enjoyed spending my time there. Three Oaks is one special place!
May 28th was my first Pints and Pallets at Pokro Brewing Company which is one upcoming and amazing place to drink. I do not say this often but I enjoy all their beers they have on the rotating tap. The pork taco are my FAVORITE! It is a great family owned business and the owners and staff are top notch. I admit I was nervous. I have taught small groups but never large groups before! It was a lot of fun and everyone did an amazing job! The next Pints and Pallets is scheduled for June 11th and will be the Blackhawks Logo!!! You can buy tickets HERE or at the brewery!
On the 30th at Paul Henry’s Art Gallery in downtown Hammond there was the opening of Giant Monsters! I have two pieces in this show and there are many awesome things to see! the show will be up until July 14th but the closing reception will be on June 27th from 6-10 PM.
