May’s Third Friday

We had a lot to do this month and looking at the big picture we had to take it a day at a time. Lucky for us the chemistry of all the artwork this rotation was breath of fresh air. The colors were similar but each piece was very different so when it was all done it was a funky and cohesive show.

The day of May’s Third Friday was very relaxed. During the day I went to my first Chicago sports game, The Cubs. (They lost.) Then I made my way over to the gallery, leveled the artwork and did one last inspection. It looked so good this month. Just before the show started I met the new intern, Marisol. She is a student at University of Illinois and majoring in art history, and she was lovely. Her and I met a few of the artists and one that stood out was Georgia Velisaris, who enjoys Chicago architecture in her mixed media pieces. We found out we went to the same college, North Central College, in Naperville and we just clicked.

This was my last Third Friday event and I think it was very successful. I spoke to art viewers and artists, and I felt, formed a better connection.
