Piece of the week and more art..

Greetings All,

Below is the Piece of the Week and it's called "Ruinart Champagne Lounge". This piece was created for the Ruinart company annual exhibit and auction. The auction proceeds go to funding art programs for children. The exhibit will open at the Art Basel at the Betsy hotel in Miami in December and from there to the auction in New York city. I will post more as I know it.

Art Basel is an exciting program of special exhibition, parties, and crossover events featuring music, film, architecture and design. Artworks by over 2,000 artists will be on display. Check out the website for more information.

The pieces below are new works created by Jennifer Scott who was a part of the Carrol Street artists open studios last weekend. Jennifer's studio is at 3200 W. Carrol and she's working on a group of paintings that are from photos that she took in the southwest. I love the softness of these image.

Then next images below are images from the artist Andy Holck ( below left) and some beautiful people that were there when we stopped by HD Design & Printing at 2950 W. Carrol. This was a first time for us to visit and a first for them being a part of the tours. I was drawn to Andy paintings and line drawings. The wooden sculpture outside in the vacant lot was a true surprise and could not resist taking a picture.

Once we left Andy's we went to the Albany-Carrol Building and there I was drawn to Christine Worley art. She love rust and in the art-quilt world that has become a new patina that we use to change cloth. Her work is done on paper and I ask could we set-up a play date. We shall see. You can see more of Christine's work at

Lucy Slivinski is the artist below and she creates these wonderful works out of wire, chain, metal, and other found object. She was just great to talk too and I was so drawn to her work and studio. There was an organized clutter. You can see more of Lucy's work at

The next studio that we visited was a occupied by a mother and her son. Scott Becker is the artist below (right) standing with my friend Kaana (below left) holding one of his digital prints. Scott not only dose digital art he illustrates, animation, audio production and he teaches. I love the fact that he was sharing the space with his mother and dad was sitting there in attendance. A true family affair.
Glady Becker (below right) who's watercolors I found just delightful, even the one that she did of a storm clouded road in Mississippi. She was a pleasure to talk with and very charming. We had a great time visiting with her and all the artists and I look forward to the next open studio tours.
