Encaustic by Jenny Learner “Fuschia Fun”

October is Artist Month in Chicago; the Bridgeport area is becoming a wonderful art center. The Zhou B center took over a old Spegiels warehouse and has fabulous galleries on the first and second floor, with artists studios on the upper 4 floors.

New to the Area is the Bridgeport Art Center; a combination of Businesses, Events Centers , studio space, a very impressive community Gallery. and smaller private galleries through out the building.

This area is hopping on 3rd Fridays; a smart move  in order not compete with 1st Fridays in the rest of Chicago. Studios are open,  and galleries have new exhibits.

I went there specifically to see encaustic artist Jenny Learner. and Kathy Weaver’s new series on paper.
