Mike Lyon & Art Chicago 2007

| 1 Comment


This past Sunday I attended Art Chicago 2007 . The show makes it's home at Chicago's famous Merchandise Mart and is truly an international event with over 30 participating fine Art galleries from Europe, Canada and Asia and over 100 American galleries. Under the umbrella of "Artropolis" it was one of several Art shows running concurrently in one location. So much to see and so little time !

It was great to meet up again with Mike Lyon and his wife Linda who flew in from Kansas City for the show and visit with their son Andy. Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art Gallery from Kansas City which represents Mike brought along two of his more recent (and very large !) pen and ink drawings ("Rick" and "Anthony").

My wife Maria and I met up with the Lyons and after a most needed lunch we had a great time visiting the galleries and talking shop. Mike was a real trooper getting around with little problem just days after getting his cast removed (torn achilles tendon surgery !). I for one had trouble keeping up with him !

This was quite an upscale show with price tags to match...such prices ! A few of the works we inquired about were in the $50,000 to $250,000 range. Among my favorite artists on display were works by Chuck Close, Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, Wilfredo Lam (Cuban master), Colombian Fernando Botero and of course our very own Mike Lyon.

Berndt Savig


Greetings all,
My name is Berndt Savig and I was introduced to the Baren Forum by Paul de Jode. Presently I am an assistant professor in art and am planning on becoming more involved in printmaking when school lets out this next month. I have enjoyed viewing the prints and looking at some of the forum discussions, though I have yet to figure out how to join them...
I am wondering if there is anyone who would be interested in a four or five day camping/printmaking get together in Colorado? Just throwing it out there as a possibility. There would be room to work on prints, but tents would be necessary for sleeping accomodations.
