On Friday, the Arts of Life is hosting the opening of its second annual Square Foot Show. Last yearâ€™s opening was a bright and uplifting evening, and I look forward to seeing what art has been contributed this year. More than 100 pieces from the Arts of Life and other artists from around the country have been accepted, with the only stipulation that they be 12 inches by 12 inches each.
The opening reception will be at the North Shore Studio at 1963 Johns Dr, Glenview, IL, on Friday, March 29th from 6 to 8pm, with a performance by the North Shore Music Ensemble at 7pm. Sponsored by Glenview Caribou Coffee, the event is free and open to the public.Â My Swift SwallowtailsÂ will be gliding along the show walls, and Meetup Painter PiotrÂ Wolodkowicz has entered a piece as well.
Inside Glenview featured The Arts of Life in their March 2013 issue, featuring North Shore Studio’s 2013 artist of the year, Nikole Heusman. You can check out the issue online by clicking on March in the calendar next to the search box.
