Back to blogging

January 28, 2015

I know it seems like I’ve vanished from word press. I can assure you I’ll be posting more resources, news, info, reviews for art, illustration, concept art, 3D, animation, figure drawing, still life, art history, and more very soon. I will make an effort to post more often; at least twice a month. Stay tuned and continue to follow my blog.

Than You for following me

Michael Burton Exhibit with Distinctly Art Festival South Shore

March 5, 2013









I would like to thank the South Shore Distinctly Art Festival staff for selecting my work for the group exhibition. This is the first time exhibiting my work in the Chicago South Shore area. The staff curators did a great job installing the work for the window display; it’s very vibrant and clean, and really catches your attention.
The exhibit has been up since October and will run through March(there will be a close out reception at the end of March). If you happen to be in the south shore area check it out on 71st and Oglesby.
One last note; this is a small part of the Mother Earth Conservation exhibit. Look out for the Conservation Exhibit A sometime this year.
