On Friday May 21, 6 - 10 pm, local painter Joey Wozniak will be the special guest artist in the studio of Jason Messinger at the Cornelia Arts Building May Open House.

Jason Messinger inaugurates his new "Featured Guest Artist" spot with local celebrity artist Joey Wozniak, who's oil paintings have been a draw for many of Mr. Messinger's curated art shows, including the highly celebrated Crazy 8 show.

Joey Wozniak will be showing new oil paintings in his signature style using thickly-applied and scrapped paints in combination with hand-stenciled imagery.

Over 35 artists will be open for the Friday night event in a fun and free event showcasing artwork in a variety of mediums, held in the working studios of Cornelia Arts Building artists and artisans. Artwork is for sale and includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, print making, ceramics, mixed media, apparel, and jewelry. Steps from Roscoe Village shopping, and convenient to the CTA - two blocks from Brown Line Addison stop, with free parking available in front of building and near by in neighborhood.

An additional special feature of this building-wide open-house event is 
"Urbs in Horto" - local artists inspired by the City in a Garden
a curated hallway exhibit featuring resident artists' interpretation of the City of Chicago's official Latin motto. This first floor hallway show of paintings, drawings, photography, and other artwork leads into two full floors of artists in their working art studios.

On Sat. May 22, 11 - 3 pm, a limited number of artists will be open for the "Second Chance Open House," including the studio of Jason Messinger, showing Joey Wozniak.

Jason Messinger will be showing new original tile murals. All tiles are available individually, rather than only as larger sets, repeating the great success of his recent solo show at the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts. Besides new art tiles, the artist is introducing new modestly priced gifts; including new playing card sets, postage stamps, and posters. Also on view are Jason Messinger's drawings, paintings in watercolor and ink, and sculpture.
