The Chicago Art Open

Next weekend is the Chicago Art Open!
I'm dropping my piece off at the Iron Studios this afternoon - it's all wrapped up and ready to go.

Opening Benefit of the Chicago Art Open
October 5, 2007
Iron Studios, 3636 South Iron
Chicago, IL

In keeping with the Chicago Artists' Month theme of Creative Alliances, the Chicago Artists' Coalition has invited the Old Town School of Folk Music to organize the entertainment for the Opening Benefit. The line-up features:

6:30 - Congress Of Starlings
7:30 - Ripley Caine
8:30 - Julia Storke
9:15- Baba Manouche

Belly dancing by the Gypsy Queens.

Tickets are $20 per person and include food and drink. Available at the door.

This is the Painting I am entering:

I'm asking $850 for it. If it sells, the Chicago Artists' Coalition will get 40% of that, and because I had to have it professionally framed (cost $100) I will be left with $410. If you factor in the cost of materials, I am left with $350. So I guess I'll keep my day job.

If it sells it'll help me pay for my trip to Europe. If not, I'll be happy to keep the painting because I love this piece.

Incidentally, if you love this piece too, but don't really want to put down $850 for it, you can get a giclee print reproduction of it through the Chicago Artists' Coalition for something like $150. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you the info.
