Art Chicago 2010

Art Chicago 2010

It’s been fun and exciting exchanging emails with people at Aureus Contemporary
for the past weeks setting up details for Art Chicago.  It all started when I spotted
really nice paintings by Karim Hamid at BOOOOOOOM.  I was taken by them
enough to contact the artist to tell him how much I enjoyed.  Karim kindly invited
me to come see them in person at one of the art fairs in NYC last month.  I checked
out some of his latest pieces there and we enjoyed chatting.

Shortly after that, I got an email from the director of Aureus Contemporary,
Andreas Kuefer, asking me to team up for Art Chicago next month.  So there we go.
Aureus Contemporary will have a 850 sf booth and it’ll put emphasis on three
artists, Karim Hamid, Sara Carter, and myself.  There will be six pieces of mine on
view.  And you get to see more from Karim also.

Here is some info about Art Chicago taken from its site:
