The "red" Reception...

There was a wonderful turnout at tonight’s reception for “red” the National Juried Exhibition at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago. Three pieces were acquired for the school’s Fine Art Collection. They were: Richard Benoit’s "Earth Writing", Claudia Craemer’s "The Path was Chosen for You" and Lorraine Sack’s "Sea Captain". The show continues through November 11th. If you have the opportunity, drop by the gallery to see this wonderful collection of work from around the country. The show is free to the public and the presented pieces are available for purchase. Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art is located at 180 North Wabash—at the corner of Lake and Wabash—in Chicago’s Loop.

  1. Did someone buy my painting..Earth Writing? Don't you just hate going to a gallery and falling in love with a painting that has "SOLD" across the description! (not that I could actually afford anything sold in a gallery, but I like to imagine I could.)

  2. There were many people interested in Benoit's "Earth Writing". Richard has some wonderful work and they're reasonably priced. You can find other available pieces at:

    Thanks for your comments!

  3. Chuck,
