Upcoming Events at Blue Moon Gallery

FUSEDChicago Presents SMALL WONDERS — A Group Exhibition of Encaustic Art 

Opening Reception — Saturday, October 28, 6-9pm
2nd Reception — Saturday, November 18, 6-9pm

FUSEDChicago is an organization of artists in the Midwest who share an interest in encaustic, a method of making art using pigmented wax fused to a surface by heat.

FUSEDChicago artists are painters, sculptors, printmakers, and photographers who bring contemporary sensibilities to their art and use modern technology in creating their work. Many members are inspired by the qualities of wax itself – the brilliance of its colors, its tactility and malleability, the luminescence of wax layers, and the textural possibilities of its surface.

Experience a dynamic & exciting group exhibition featuring new works from 24 esteemed FUSEDChicago Artists! All 35 works in the exhibition are under 20 inches. 

On view through December 3
Open Weekends 1-4pm

Crystal Marie, New Works: Collage Art Paintings

Crystal Marie is an artist, author, and creative mentor with a passion for teaching others how to recover their own unique voice. Her process is intuitive, which, she says, is simply the truest, most authentic version of her own voice. 

Crystal has an established career as a professional artist with gallery representation, one book published on the art of collage, and is currently writing a book about the process of working intuitively as an artist to overcome blocks in the studio. Crystal has exhibited her work in many fine art exhibitions and solo shows and was the recipient of the 2018 Racine Art Museum Artist Fellowship. She teaches workshops online and at  locations across the US. She runs an online community for creatives called Canary Rising and is part of a small collective of artists who collaborate and show their work together.
