Art Smart: May Ugallery Picks and Giveaway

Every month I started my monthly Ugallery feature, I have been amazed at how many talented artists I have to choose from! To keep myself from posting every great work, I usually try to stick to a theme. For May, I wanted to post works that reminded me of the beginning of summer from baseball games to changing landscapes and Venetian vacations and road trips. They all feel like summer to me.

I am also excited to announce that Ugallery will be exhibiting at The Affordable Art Fair in New York (7 West 34th Street) from May 7-10, 2009 so you can check out the art in person! They are also giving away 10 tickets ($80 value and admits two) to the Private Preview cocktails and sneak peek reception Wednesday, May 6 from 6:00-9:00pm. The first 10 Habitually Chic readers to email me with their name will have the tickets left for them at the Will Call window. Good luck!
