First and foremost, I turned 30. Yep, the BIG 30, dirty thirty and it has already been amazing. This summer I have started, finished and I am workng my way through so many pieces and ideas. I am truly blessed and fortunate to be able to do so.
Sip & Savor
This summer I made two great connections/partnerships with two black owned businesses in Chicago. The first is an amazing coffee house called Sip & Savor. The owner is Trez V. Pugh, III and he has been supporting local artists in his shops.
Here are pictures of chicago artists, Terrance Martin and Jittuan Priest, and myself having an art party/session at the coffee house.
My second connection this summer was with a gentleman name Mikhael Moshe and he is the owner of Insit Studio. It operates as a gallery and commuity space that thrives off creativity, think tanks and the constant evolution of people ideas. In late August, Insit will be having an exhibition entitled Original Man. This is a group showing that includes talented artist from all over Chicago as well as lecturers and professors aboout the black man as original man. Below is the flyer and the pieces that will be exhibiting.
