I try my best to make it to every art show I'm able to. I love being surrounded by like-minded, creative people and gathering inspiration from other artists' work. It's a nice way for me to get out of my own head and indulge in fresh ideas that don't belong to me.
This art show was especially important for me to make it to because my friend and one of my favorite photographers in the Chicagoland area, Jordyn Belli (a.k.a. sleepykiwis) had her work displayed in it. Seeing her beautiful images on my Instagram feed is one thing, but I was dying to see it in the physical form, displayed strategically beside one another and amongst the work of other talented artists. I switched my shift at work so I could get off early and go see Jordyn's work in this environment.
