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.
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 http://www.lucyslivinski.com/
