TANDEM Pop Up Art Shows


Stagg and I had two different shows this past Friday night. We did pop up shows in the south side and north side of Chicago. Stagg did his in a warehouse in southside for DJ show and event. Mine was at our Armitage campus at Old Town School. So fun, but I woke at 5 a.m. and delivered art, cooked, worked a concert and then picked up Stagg at 3 a.m. I was tired for a couple of days!

Help Please Pledge?

Hi, I am going to publish my artist site publicly soon. I am hoping to get 50 people to pledge within two weeks.

Please consider pledging $1 a month? It's easy, and I'd love to hear what you think of the concept.

By pledging $1 a month you are helping me finish a feature documentary and helping me to focus on painting.

If you pledge a $1 per month...before December 2nd, I will put your name in the credits of my new short film.

Here is the link to my page.....thanks for looking!

Spaghetti Night

 A bunch of us did a fundraising supper for the Buddhist Temple of Chicago. While we cooked enough sauce for 100 people, Stagg did some drawing so we could create a sort of Italian theme for the evening.




 I sort of did a silly version of leaning tower. Ha!
 Daryl and Joh stirring the sauce and pre-cooking the pasta.
 Here is the kitchen gang.
 Stagg and John helped Karen hang decorations. We had a great night and did lots of hard work. I was tired for about a week after! People said they had fun. We had some great prizes for silent auction and raffle draws. And we made a few bugs for donations.

Nick Lowe Show

 This is the third year Nick Lowe has played at my work. Wow! I feel so lucky to see him play on consecutive evenings over such a time period. The previous years he was with a band and performed his holiday revue. In October he was solo and was playing a span of his work.
 Nick Lowe's weapon of love. wrapping up the night...

 My friend Leona and a volunteer at Old Town School won a silent auction  couple years ago of this guitar, with Nick's signature. This time, she got her pic with him.
