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.
If you are in Illinois, particularly, the Chicagoland area, the show will be up until May 2nd.
