My name is Michéle P. Owens and I am a Visual Artist. My studio is based in Olympia Fields, IL (Chicago born and raised--South Side). I love to create in various mediums. Most recently I have been painting with acrylics. I love to create! To start with something so vague and distorted and then to end up with something that explains the vagueness or distortion is more than intriguing to me (more about me and my art later). I started this Blog as an extension of my website (www.michelepowens.com). It serves many purposes: a means of 'exhaling' while I work--to release the crowded thoughts that might interfere with the process of creating art; and as an online avenue for creative and expressive writing. Let's see what will come from this...

50 | 50 Regional Art Exhibit - Union Street Gallery
50 | 50 Regional Art Exhibit
Exhibit Dates July 10-August 30 | 2009
Free Opening Reception Fri | Jul 10 | 6-9pm
Regional Artists explore their stories in traditional and 21st century media, they investigate nature, urban life, textures, colors, sound and video, and so much more. From dreamy to quirky, from lush color and texture to soft organic forms, the art is as diverse as the number of artists on exhibit. Art is for sale with prices ranging from $50 and up.
I have 3 paintings in this exhibition - one work was donated for gallery fundraising efforts. The picture below is the donated piece (Spokes II - acrylic - 8" x 10" - 2008).
