An exhibition of artwork made on coasters, or constructed using coasters. This fun summer show will included dozens of artist and creatives at all career levels and skill sets. We are exhibiting work from Chicago artists and those beyond the Midwest . Coaster sizes and shapes will vary, that's not too important. They will be admitted based on their creativity and content.

The show runs June 13 - July 13
Deadline is June 8, 2014

The next time you are at your local bar, ask for a coaster. Not old enough to be in a bar...then Cobalt will provide coasters to anyone who visits us and wants to participate. [supplies are limited]
The exhibition Opens June 13 at Cobalt Studio 1950 W. 21st Street [1st] Chicago IL 60608  The show runs June 13 - July 13. With extended viewing hours on weekends and by appointment. All unsold work must be picked up by July 13th. Hours will be posted soon.
