With the help of John Downs, we have secured a great place for our next local show before the turnover. The has agreed to host a show in September 2006. They will provide us with their space, help us with sponsors for the cocktail party, and bring in a designer to design the show space for us. The Library will also provide us with a brochure or possibly a catalog of the event. They will scan our “unframed” work and some will be selected for the brochure. The art will be framed by us as we have in the past. In order to get all of this accomplished, we will have to have an earlier deadline than normal.
If you are planning on staying in Chicago during our opening at the Library please conact the for great places to stay in that area.
