Art and Business mixer, "VIP Reception, at Murphy Hill Gallery was a success this year. It was well attended by artist, art supporters, business owners, and politicians. The event was catered, and had live music; people meandered throughout the block long gallery. An "Artists Talk" by local Curators: William Hill of Murphy Gallery, Gaberial Patti of the Phantom Gallery, Everett Williams of Creative Arts Alliance, Frederic Owens Art Museum of Chicago, and Dan Godston curator of Synesthetic Plan of Chicago, talked about "Problems and Considerations Exhibiting in Alternative Exhibition Spaces. We also connected to Phantom Gallery LA; they were hosting an art walk in 15 galleries in the LA area, where each artists/curator gave a talk about their installation through their cell phone.
An Art and Business discussion also took place later in the evening where featured artists and their guest talked about the need to support the artists and well as the gallery, committees were developed to explore ways to develop art markets, bringing in collectors, and attracting corporate support.
