The art also blew me away. I have to say, there are a lot of talented artists in Chicago. Check out some of the paintings that caught me eye below:
|Painting by Ray Espiritu and the Butterfish Group|
|The Letter A, Oil Pastel, Kathryn Aleksov|
|Third Eye, Annalise Kucan|
I have always been a fan of drawing or painting eyes. So it is easy to see why this painting got my attention. The mans eyes are very powerful. It is as if he is looking into my soul and can read me.
|Middle Painting, Audrey, Acrylic Paint|
I am a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn so that piece jumped out at me right away! I especially love the blue halo around her. (If you are the artist please contact me so I can give you credit)
|Alyssa Marie Beech|
I admire this artist for creating these creative art pieces since they are very unique. The patterns and colors are what caught my eye.
|Dylon Cooper Art|
These paintings are beautifully painted with special attention to detail. I really like how all the attention is focused on the subject. The subject matter is quit interesting especially the large female sitting on a small stool.
Live painting was a special addition to the show! (If you are the artist, please contact me so that I can give you credit) This event stimulated all of my senses, especially my eyes!
I want to thank Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer for sponsoring this wonderful event. I also want to thank all of those who made this event possible (all emerging artist) and especially those that came out and supported the arts!
