Midway Art Fair

Midway Art Fair

November 10th and 11th: Open Hours 12 – 6 PM

Mana Contemporary, 2233 South Throop Street Chicago, IL 60608

I have been fortunate enough to have been asked to participate in this years Midway Art Fair,
here in Chicago in the Pilsen neighborhood. Andrea Jablonski came and picked through a whole
mess of drawings and chose about 26 pieces. All works on paper, mostly india ink, some gouache
and water color. I’m honored that my stuff will be hanging with Ken Ellis’s totally amazing quilts! Check us out at the Elastic Arts Foundation booth.

TELL YOUR PEEPS! Hope to see you over the weekend.
