#~friday night art stomp...1/12/07
So , we started the art stomp on 32nd Halsted for Juan Chavez's drawing show "Hilo"
~Wall drawings(not my faves)
~crowded as usual, and hot
~usual cast of characters...
the artist himself "Juan Chavez"
and the obligatory
east pilsen art enthusiast
~there was an ample snack table including:
~lastly, it was comforting to see what I thought was Juan's close family in attendance (kids included)...
a good showing all around.
Next stop was crosstown to Rogers Park at Bar None for Anthony Lewellen's Showing of some of his latest pencil drawings...
~Much smaller crowd, much smaller venue than 32&Urban...
~Dank and Smoky (its a bar :/)
~Tevo Howard on the 1's and 2's...
old school Hip Hop
...music was definately an A+
Hip Hop heads
Rogers Park Bar None locals
~A lil difficult to enjoy the art such a loud , distracting enviroment
~pieces were excellent and well priced, maybe even low priced....
~Favorite piece was "Trafficer"(sp?)...pictured in flyer below
~Anthony was gracious and friendly as usual....
Then, back south to Clothes Optional on Clark Street...
...Kevin manning the door in an oh so stylish leisure suit jacket...
small and cramped...theres a theme here.
Lots of cool nick knacks and vintage clothes,
The photos were OK at best and really hard to see...
Punkers and other worldly peeps....my kinda people :)
Good Old Punk and rocker music
Levis pouch for $2.50...dude
Lacoste Vintage Winbreaker, $7.50, just like the one I had in grade school, with and old school elastic & metal clasp, in case you wanted to wear it as a hipsack! OMG! It also folds into a easy to carry pouch, to say the least Im delighted..
Back to belmont for:
Mandatory Pizza slice and Cheesefries(OMGravy!!)
at Philly's Best...a sidewalk slice in the summer here is the best!
...back to the casa
all this happened in like 5 hours...and we had a great night on the town....amazing
