SOFA CHICAGO 11/11

A few photos from SOFA Chicago for Tracy McCabe Stewart who moved to sunny California and could not join us at Navy Pier this year.

 

  Artist Bihn Pho, who we both love.  His work is quite intricate and finely detailed which gives the viewer so much to explore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Some beautiful thread-painting.  So sorry I did not get the names of these artists.  If anyone knows who they are, please share!

This same weekend at Festival Hall Navy Pier, Chicago hosts the 17th Annual International Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fair: SOFA CHICAGO 2010, featuring 80 art galleries and dealers from 10 countries.  Also at Navy Pier this weekend, you can see The Intuit Show of Folk and Outsider Art.
