. Martin is from Chicago and has been a teacher in the city since 1973. Her students have won the premiere student cover art competition sponsored by the Chicago Bulls Development Foundation for seven consecutive years. She attended Pratt Institute and Washington University (St. Louis).
The work is personal and inspired by those close to her—using paint, encaustic and photo transfer.
She teaches at the Jordan Community School in Chicago (named after the Jordan family, not Michael specifically). Martin has even done an encaustic piece for Michael’s mother, Deloris.
“Mrs. Jordan was involved in the school since its inception 20 years ago so I have known her that long. Last year I had a student art show at the Black Cloud Gallery,” says Martin. “All donation names were put in a hat. The one that got picked received an encaustic painting made from their photo. Mrs. Jordan wanted one as well. I did a painting for her from an old photo. “
Martin as graciously agreed to do the same for mapanare.us. As a new reward for our Kickstarter Martin will create a 12"x 12", 9" x 12" or 12"x 16" encaustic painting of a photo provided by YOU (just like she did for Michael’s mom). Usually this would cost $500.

's skull sculptures first caught my eye when I saw a completely silver skull with silver flowers wound through the horns. I regret not having a photo of that piece (to say nothing of having the piece itself). Hamilton is the first confirmed artist for the Constantly.Consuming.Culture Art Show. You can check out the Kickstarter for the show HERE
.This is a smaller piece --and one of her only finished ones that hasn't been sold. Her work uses antlers skulls and other pieces of the once animate to create sculptures that make you forget about the what is used to create them. Hamilton makes them new.Like many artists who will be part of the Constantly.Consuming.Culture. Art Show, Hamilton has a "real job." She has a degree in communications from DePaul University and, among many other things, runs www.prettywindycity.com.

Butter Box and the Talking Piano
is artist Camille Iemmolo
’s latest art piece/installation. It will be held at Madame Zuzu’s (582 Roger Williams Ave)
in Highland Park, Illinois from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday May 11, 2013. The venue is owned by Smashing Pumpkins
’ Billy Corgan (no he isn’t going to be performing so don’t think that).
Iemmolo continues, in this piece, to combine material culture and human interaction. In the cold months the artist found herself craving baked goods. The dark skies and snow led to eating cookies, cupcakes and other sweet, buttery treats. Naturally this led to guilt. We shy away from such sweets for our health but we still crave them.
Is this craving tied to love? Iemmolo wants to explore the link between food and psychology with a particular eye to butter which was once used as tribute and sacrifice.
When we are younger baked goods are treats and rewards for good behavior. Or these goods are just tied to good memories of our mothers giving treats after school. Iemmolo wonders what happens if this buttery, sweet fat is missing? Do we just crave it forever? She also wonders if instead of these sweets, these treats, shouldn’t we humans crave each other in this way?
Come see the artist’s Talking Piano and kids from CPS Jordan Community School. As with al Iemmolo’s events it will be magical fun.
