The Lost Artists Show
“3RD Anniversary Celebration”
Saturday, November 8th
5 – 9pm -Art Opening / Reception
Art Colony Studio Building
2630 W. Fletcher St., Chicago, IL 60618
Tucked away in the Avondale Chicago area, was the Art Colony’s 2nd Saturday opening reception. This event marks the third year of Art Colony, featuring an upcoming studio space for artists and musicians. The venue is located on Fletcher, one street South of Belmont between Rockwell and Washtenaw, where they are working their way into the art scene in the Logan Square and Avondale neighborhoods.
The reception opened with live poetry, before singer and songwriters Matthew Morgan and Liz Chidester put on a soothing show. Liz Chidester filled the room with her beautiful voice. Morgan and Chidester harmonized wonderfully together. The main stage room, though small, has wonderful acoustics, and the music sounded great in the space.
The artwork in the studios consisted of painting and drawing, with heavy Chicago Imagists influence. The vibrant colors and patters in these paintings have that hometown feeling. Participating Studio Artists include: Walter Fydryck, Adam Helman, Frank Mascenic, Kirk Rohrbaugh, James Vellner, Luke Carlson. Participating Visiting Artists include: David Bechtol, Nancy Bechtol, Brian Garay, Bohdan Gernaga, Ken Hirte, John Tyszko, Kat Van Horn, Chelsea Witherby.
