Reggie’s is a well known rock club on in the SOuth Loop of Chicago. Most up and coming rock bands have played there if the thick layers of band stcikers covering every surface of the bathrooms was any indication. This was two nights on a very warm summer night in August. I had scalded my hand on superheated popcorn oil a few days earlier so I was all wrapped up in gauze for this one. We met in Chinatown for dinner and then headed to the show with my crate of prints and bagged originals. I had included my 5in x 7in Urban Sketch prints in editions of 5. They proved the most popular. I sold several pieces both Saturday and Sunday. THere was a DJ and a really nice vibe here. Some buyers but mostly artists and their friends and family. Early in the night was crowded and quite a bit of attention on everybody’s pieces. It thinned as the night went on.
THe piece in the upper left did wind up selling.
I traded this piece for one of Jynells prints. She was on the wall to my left. Very nice print, She is a printmaker from WIsconsin.
The evening was great. David was a great host, introducing me to a few other artists. Two of my previous buyers accompanied me to this show. We went for Thai at YES across the street. This was just the one piece in this show.
Morpho is also a record store.
