Union Street Gallery Guild Artists At Fresh Starts Restaurant

What a restaurant!  What an art show!

I am very pleased to join the Union Street Gallery Guild artists in our group show at Fresh Starts restaurant in Flossmoor, Illinois.  Our art show continues until Saturday, September 28.  My abstract painting, Mexican RoadTrip, is on display.

Once again my art is in very good company with this talented group of artists, including Barbara Leahy Edwards, who is displaying her vibrant abstract art.

I really appreciated the abstract art of Richard Benoit, including his painting Sea Grass.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at moderate prices at Fresh Starts restaurant last weekend.  It is located at 1040 Sterling Avenue, Flossmoor, Illinois. 60422. Fresh Starts has a quaint, European Cafe atmosphere, and has garnered award after award for its fabulous recipes prepared with skill and creativity.  Their rave reviews in the Chicago Tribune, Star Newspaper, Daily Southtown, Chicago Magazine and Sun Times are well-deserved. For reservations, phone 708 957 7900.  Hope you enjoy our art as well.
