Welcome to the new blog

So this blog will be taking the place of the RSS feed on myspace that previously functioned as my primary blogspot.

Recent news! I am now writing an average of three articles a week on Chicago and suburban area art events... some of my recent postings include the Oak Park Arts District, Museum of Contemporary Photography, and The Prairie Arts Center of Schaumburg. To see my articles, visit my page at www.examiner.com/x-15510-Chicago_Fine_Art_Examiner.

Our current exhibit at the studio in Oak Park continues until August 16th. This month's exhibit, "Shaping Space" features the found frame paintings and ceramic sculptures of Eve Chulee Choowong-In and the hand-crafted blacksmith work in steel and other recycled metals of Will Slagel of Metal Meanders.

To see more of these artists work, visit the press release at: http://www.flyngypsyarts.com/doc/news/press-release/2009-07-17_shaping-space-open-studio.pdf

In addition, my work in costume, wands, and etched metal is on display. For an appointment to visit the studio, contact me, Jessica at artist@flyngypsyarts.com
