SAA Resident Artists: James Pepper Kelly of Chicago and German-born Astrid Kaemmerling

Scott Faingold from The Scene (rip) is back to talk about his recent story on developments at the Springfield Artist Association - including an exhibit up until Saturday called Living with Modernism: Mid-Century Decorative Art. We also hear from the two artists kicking off the SAA's new artist residency program.

As Scott writes in the Illinois Times: "The Springfield Art Association is currently in high gear with a unique exhibit featuring nearly 300 specimens of modernist furniture and décor. The SAA is also now hosting the first two visiting artists to participate in the recently established Enos Park residency program for visual artists."

Read the rest, here. And tune in for a conversation including input from the resident artists, James Pepper Kelly and Astrid Kaemmerling:
Kaemmerling has a reception at the UIS Visual Arts Gallery Wednesday - her work will remain open to the public thru Friday. More info here.
