Visual Arts Faculty Show, March 5th, 2014

It was a very nice experience to not only contribute to the faculty show, but to also meet some of the instructors I haven’t had the chance to meet this past year.  I have known Madelyn from our times teaching at HCA (Hinsdale Center for the Arts) but never met Ann when she worked there.  And now with working with Kate and Laura, I can finally put faces with the names of all the other talented people I work with.

The evening was wonderful and we had a nice gathering of people who came out to support us.  I was so busy taking photos of the event that I was unaware that I had lots of people looking at my artwork.  I feel much love from the community in the western burbs when I see people enjoying what I make.

We also had a wonderful jazz band who played all night while everyone enjoyed the nice spread of appetizers and desserts my fellows instructors and I brought.

Wow! How this year is going by so fast. Tomorrow will be the opening reception to the second art show I will be in for the year. This second show will be held at the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, IL. It also happens to be where I get to teach drawing and painting during the week. I am so lucky and blessed that I found a wonderful place to continue teaching art to my students and giving me the opportunity to show my work to the community.

If you live in the Chicagoland area, please stop by either tomorrow evening or anytime during the duration of the show and you can view in person some of the work that is highlighted in the gallery here on my blog. Information for the show is below.  I hope everyone can find the time to come by and see what the faculty at Mayslake has been up to in our studios.  🙂
