Hello and welcome to FALL! We have quite a few things coming up.
On Saturday, October 13th, 2 talks and a concert.
David Sutton also will be on hand selling his new book about Cigar Box Guitars....He is the author and photographer of Cigar Box Guitars: "The Ultimate DIY Guide for the Makers and Players of the Handmade Music Revolution". Sutton is better known locally as the owner of and principal portrait photographer at Sutton Studios, where he has specialized in capturing the unique bond between people and their pets for over fifteen years.
Believe it or not there is more....we are participating in our bi-annual EXPLORE FULTON MARKET, same day, Saturday, October 13, 12 - 5 PM. This means in our general neighborhood there will be about 40 creative businesses up for your visit... Of course start here! There will be a simple visitation game with cash prizes involving the best hand of poker....
And if you have gotten this far... Two more things. The night before all these events, there is a reception for new gallery artist Peter Karklins. He does the most concentrated and intense surreal pencil drawings I have ever seen. We will have a show for him in February, but you can get a museum peak of his work at the DePaul Art Museum on Friday evening, October 12 from 6 - 8 PM.
