Next month I have two events coming up, both of which relate to the theme of Valentine's Day, but in completely opposite ways. The first will be my second annual Fall in Love With Art event at my open studio. Once again I plan to serve cupcakes and Valentea Passion from Argo tea. They were so delicious the last time, though I hope to have a better turnout this year. Still, there are worse things than having to take a huge container of delicious hibiscus passion fruit tea home with me because there were so few visitors to share it with.

The second show is called Bleed Heart Bleed: The Art of the Break-Up. It will be at the Design Cloud gallery. I am really excited about this one, as it will be my first time exhibiting anything from my Frozen Bride series. I created it for deeply personal reasons, which was why I never posted any of the photos from it online. Now that some time has passed and I found out about a show that would be appropriate, I am exhibiting a piece from the series. So here, for the first time, is the photo that will be in the show.
I am looking forward to seeing what the other artists in the show will contribute. The gallery describes the event in these words:
West Loop’s Design Cloud Gallery is back this year with a group show that’s bigger and more heart wrenching than the last. Paintings, photographs, installations and short film are exhibited together for a cohesive look at lost love. Each artist offers the viewer a glimpse of pain, regret and reflection of how they were--or weren’t--able to cope.And here are all the details on both events:
