Celebrating Chicago Artists Month 2014 - Crossing Borders
We are a patchwork of creative energy intersecting the lines of our cultural, artistic, and personal views
in our practices under one roof. A painter inspired by a fiber artist, a musician playing a tune in response to artwork in
our gallery, a writer who finds inspiration in the sound of a practicing voice or the melody of the piano or violin.... an
artist who finds refuge in the meditative space of a yoga studio, another painter who explores the crossing paths of spirituality
and art with her vibrant symbolic imagery....inviting all those who appreciate art and music, seek the pleasure
of walking into the used bookstore (complete with guardian cat), or want to try a quick tap lesson at the dance
center. Every 2nd Friday of
every month we open our studios to the public.
NEXT SECOND FRIDAY OPEN STUDIOS:
Friday November 14, 2014 from 5pm
A list of open studios will
be published the week of the next OPEN STUDIOS...
FAB Studios is now a member of the Chicago Loop Alliance (CLA) and took part in CLA's first Open Streets on State Street.
It was a huge success. Over 10,000 visitors joined FAB Studio members to fill State Street with art and music.
SECOND FLOOR GALLERY: October Exhibition
FAB Studios Annual Members Show
It was great fun working with my fellow artists Tiffany Gholar and
Jennifer Cronin. We did it! Or in the the words of Andre Breton, founder of Surrealism: What exalted us in these productions
was indeed the conviction that, come what might, they bore the mark of something that could not be begotten by one mind alone
and that they were endowed, in a much greater measure, with a power of drift that poetry cannot value too highly
