DESCRIPTION

Studies and compositions often play a vital role in the artistic process. Whether a five-minute sketch on paper or a finely worked image on canvas, these efforts reveal the thoughts of an artistic mind at work.

Midnite Snacks : Chicago includes over 160 international artists presenting diverse studies that have helped actualize works of merit. Coming from far ends of the visual arts spectrum, these are works that usually fall in the shadow of more important pieces. This is a collection of the forgotten blueprints lying around every artist’s studio. From abstraction to photo-realistic drawing to digital renderings, each piece functions as the backbone of what is to come.

Midnite Snacks exhibited at Ghost Print Gallery in Richmond, VA and No Globe Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in 2009. Plans to extend the show to Milwaukee, WI and a museum in Newport News, VA are in development.
