Save the Date!

I finally have dates set for my graduate art show: May 3 - 14th.  The date for the reception has not been set yet, but once it is, I will post it here so keep checking for further details.

Anthropologie's eco chic window display

Recently a new Anthropologie store opened on State Street.

Their window display is a real inspiration.  What a stunning transformation of plastic bottles into flowers.

Pictures from the Rain Barrel Open House


The Rain Barrel Open House was a success.


The other artists who participated were all there, and it was great to get to meet them and see what everyone else created with their rain barrels.









It was held at the Center for Green Technology, which is a great resource for information on environmentally friendly living solutions for design professionals and residents alike. While we were there, we toured a model home on the property. Designed by students from the University of Illinois at Chicago, it was planned to be a very efficient modular home. And it even had a rain barrel on the porch.


There were plenty more behind the house, so I'm sure if anyone else wants to paint a rain barrel, there are plenty more just waiting to be painted.


Ultimately the hope for our rain barrels is that they will be on display in more locations. I will keep you posted on where you will be able to view them next.

Sorry it took me a while to update. I have been pretty busy adjusting to life after art school, with my new day job (which I really do like, by the way). Please be patient while I take time to plan my graduate show and my wedding. Yes, 2010 is going to be a pretty busy year for me. And I am looking forward to it!
