The Spiezer Collection Makes Its Once-a-Decade Appearance

This is the big one, at least for those interested in Chicago art. The Rockford Art Museum's once-a-decade showcase of the magnificent Spiezer Collection brings together the world's largest collection of post-1975 Chicago art. 

The Spiezer Collection features work by every major master of Chicago art created the last 34 years, including Ed Paschke, Hollis Siegler, Roger Brown, Carl Wursum, Gladys Nilson and many more.

The July 17, 2009, opening reception will include a lecture tour by noted art dealer and arts writer Paul Klein, followed by a gala reception at which Mrs. June Spiezer and many of the artists will be in attendance.

The show will run July 18 through September 27 at the Rockford Museum of Art in Rockford, 711 N. Main Street, Rockford, Illinois. For further information, 

or call 815-968-2787.

4x4 HPAC Fundraiser

You are invited to a unique fundraiser to benefit the Hyde Park Art Center.  On June 16th, myself and three other artists will be reverting Design Within Reach Tree Studios into artists 'studios.'  Each of us will be painting live at the event, while a silent auction takes place.  At the end of the evening, our work will be sold to the highest bidder, and all proceeds will go to the Hyde Park Art Center.  This promises to be a fun, lively and unique event.  I hope to see you there!
