Tonight was the opening reception for the Emerging Artists Exhibition at a great gallery/art studio in the Loop — and guess who had one of her works featured? My boss, Suzy (below, grinning ear-to-ear)! This was a jurored exhibit, so her work had to go through an entry and selection process. Although I would hardly consider Suzy to be “emerging” as an artist She’s been a wonderful artist for a long time (I happily own a Suzy original!). But I guess you could say that she is emerging in the sense that she’s finally putting her work out there for the world to see. I’m hoping this will become a trend as more people get to know and want to see more of her work. Congratulations, Suzy! SO happy for you.
