Nothing like a cold Chicago day spent in a museum and gallery hopping! I went to the MCA today to see the Jenny Holzer exhibit before it closes next week, then went to a bunch of galleries in the River North district. I took some good notes at the MCA and will probably nerd out in a post soon and put up/discuss my notes and thoughts about other exhibitions I saw.

That's right, my first guest blog will be published tomorrow! Make sure to check out Chicago artist Dolan Geiman's blog Friday January 23rd for my "Link Love" listing. Every week they are featuring a list of links based around a central theme, and I chose embroidery and sewing in contemporary art and craft. Since that's been an obsession of mine for awhile it was an obvious choice. Thanks to Dolan Geiman for the opportunity! He is currently the featured seller on etsy so make sure to check out his interview here.

I stumbled upon this great article today about embroidery and thought I would share. It's about the use of the traditional medium for more modern applications in the fine arts.
I'm a bit of nerd for this kinda stuff.
Check out the article here on the site We Make Money Not Art.

Happy New Year! It's only a few days in but it's been a good start so far! Been having good times with good friends and last night I got to see The Copyrights/Shot Baker/Hot Water Music . I think the last time I saw Hot Water Music was the Social in Orlando about 5 years ago and since then I've seen Chuck do his solo material in Chicago a few times. Anyways, point being it was a great show! Been so busy with the holidays and whatnot that I have only been working on my art here and there...Once I finish this one painting I've been working on for awhile I want to send in submissions to a few galleries for a show. I have a few smaller local galleries in mind that seem to focus on Chicago artists so we'll see...I've been having trouble focusing lately? Adult ADD? Haha who knows?
Time to work on some embroidery then hopefully it's off to Club Foot! Oh how I love my neighborhood!
