Cassie Marie Edwards
George Pappadakis

Hi everyone... On Friday night September 8th from 5–8pm, I am very excited to say we are having a show in River North at the offices of Chicago Gallery News. They have a sweet gallery space and have offered Aron Packer Projects the space for the fall. We will have gallery hours Tuesday though Friday from noon to 4 pm. I hope you will come and see me on Friday night the 8th along with the great painter Cassie Marie Edwards. Labor Day events and other details below.

Cassie Marie Edwards / Figurine II
September 8th to Oct 21st
Reception: Friday, September 8th / 5–8 PM /

Cassie's work can be forward and cartoonish on first viewing. She's been obsessed with figurines since she was young. The compelling thing about her work is how she decides to paint these ephemeral porcelain sculptures. They are a blur between painting a still life of a single object and extracting out a portrait at the same time. Of course these Tchotkes don't have a beating heart... but in a way our culture gives them one. Cassie is looking for that beating heart, through light, form, and abstraction, putting forth her fresh visual observation upon her tiny little friends. Cassie Marie Edwards is a Painter and Educator based in Oshkosh, WI. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting & Drawing from Northern Illinois University, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting & Drawing from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Currently she is an Instructor of Art at University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and an Adjunct Online Professor at Dakota State University. Prior to her current positions, she was an Instructor of Record at Northern Illinois University in the School of Art.

This Labor day weekend Aron Packer Projects will have a booth at Outsiders Outside. I will be promoting the Outsider and Folk Art Auction on Dec 15 at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. We are seeking quality consignments as we speak. Contact me at if you might have something for the auction.
