The Chicago Art Open - April 24th

The Chicago Art Open reception was a big hit and a fun time. I saw a lot of great art and met some new friends and caught up with some old ones. I was happy to see that quite a few pieces were selling. Even while times are rough, people are still collecting great art. It was also a pleasure to show alongside former classmates Anthony Adcock and Amy Zager, as well as Anna Browning who I had shown with back in March at the Flat Iron Building. Here's a few photos I got at the event before my camera died...

A view of one of three galleries filled with art. If you squint really hard you can spot my piece in the distance.

In hindsight I had a great time and made a few new contacts, saw some old friends, and got very inspired to keep painting and pushing my work. Hopefully keep this streak going and fill 2010 with more shows and more sales. My newest work "Tender" has sold and I'm thrilled at how big of a reception it got. Let's me know I'm doing something right.
