If Art Could Talk, What Would Barack Obama Say?

"If Art Could Talk, What Would Barack Obama Say?" was the theme for the art show/auction with the procedes benefitting The Dream Scholarship Fund.

I had the unique opportunity last night as a volunteer to shoot the art benefit held at the Steel Art Gallery in Chicago, IL. Several very talented local artists donated paintings and drawings, along with body painting, food, music, and fabulous goody bags to "raise dollars for scholars."

Lorri Stacker did an excellent job organizing, and there was an excellent turnout!

Why, hello there.

Why, hello there., originally uploaded by matrixchic.

Anyone that knows me, knows my love of chairs (and shoes... but I digress). I have quite a few chairs around my home.

Today while setting up the lights in the CoD studio, saw this lovely red chair that I hadn't seen there before. Perfect timing too, as today I have a model coming in for a vintage 50's styles shoot.

I named this lovely chair "Red." Isn't she lovely?
