Photos from the Monkey Tree, Creatures from the Shadows, exhibition opening on 4/7/18 at Aeon Gallery. Up now through May 26th. Visit http://theaeongallery.com/monkey-tree-artists for further info. and bios on all the featured artists.

I am thankful for Zmiya and Cheryl, Aeon Gallery owner/operators, for including me in the exhibit. I am also thankful for Sophia Rapata, for introducing me to their beautiful gallery located in historic downtown Richmond, Illinois. My first visit to the gallery was for the opening of the Rapture Exhibition on 4/28/17 which Sophia asked me to tag along to. It was a memorable and new experience for me. I am very fortunate to have this unique opportunity and to know such talented people. There is so much great work in the show and I look forward to seeing it all again for the exhibit closing.

Acrylic on found wood

Featured in “Fiscally Unviable” up now through April 14th at Studio 659 in Whiting, Indiana. This piece is symbolic of artistic endeavors. I finished it just after midnight of New Years Eve 2017 as a means of forging forth. Art making is a freedom I am thankful for and I believe art can hold real weight in the world.

3/3/18 Pen and Ink Reception

Photos from the Pen and Ink opening reception on 3/3/18 at Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, Illinois. The two pieces in the first photo sold to a collector of mid-century modern, googie architecture related things. Those same two pieces I turned into screenprints on wood for the Re-Cycle show up now at Wildrose Brewery in Griffith,Indiana.

The second piece is the original inking for what became the back cover of Elliot Gress's Naptown Collective Gradations Zine. It is inspired by the Woodmar Mall signed which was recently demolished in Hammond, Indiana. You can still purchase a copy of the Gradations Zine at  http://thenaptowncollective.bigcartel.com/product/gradations-z.

That is artist Sophia Rapata with me in the last photo. Her solo show at Fluid Coffee Bar in Valparaiso, Indiana wrapped up the night before. She has prints of her artwork featured in her show for sale at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SophiaRapata. She'll have original pieces for sale soon. She wore the coolest jacket for the show...should have won  "best jacket of show".

I am keeping the original inking for myself but I may make some screenprints of my Naptown piece and place them up for sale.Keep an eye out...

Ban Art Fair 2017

 Here is artist Sophia Rapata and I during Ban Art Fair 2017 at 18th Street Brewery. I'm holding a new screenprint I produced for the event. Sophia is holding a screenprint of my "Mummy Youth" graphic and being groovy as usual. My first big event setup as an independent artist and I managed to sell a few screenprints by the end of the day. To the folks who purchased something...thanks! You made my day.  - Casey

Witching Hour at White Ripple

Thanks to everyone who came out to Witching Hour at White Ripple. My exploration into the arts really began near the age of 15 when I started making decor for Halloween. To be apart of this event was a real capstone for all I have ever been doing creatively. The month of October is a beacon for creativity, folklore, self expression, and so much more.

If you did not make it to the opening....come to The Witching Hour Closing Reception November 1st, 7-10pm! Where?
