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 - 9pm. 

A list of open studios will be published the week of the next OPEN STUDIOS...

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
