I had the honor and privilege of being invited to the opening preview of the annual Artopolis/ NEXT artists and designers invitational at the massive and legendary Chicago Merchandise Mart. It's a massive event that will continue throughout the weekend, and I'm definitely need to going to return to finish up walking through the plethora of incredible work. I even had the pleasure of meeting some of my readers!
One of my favorite pieces I saw tonight, however, was by artist Rob Wynne at the booth of the terrific Ohio gallery Rebecca Ibel. Based out of NYC, he works with just about every media there is, in this case, hand-poured glass mirror. How cool is this:
It was quite a marathon event tonight, but I've got plenty of photos and more aesthetic goodies coming your way in the next few days. Stay tuned!
