Jim Newberry Photography Opening

Jim Newberry Photography Opening
April 2, 2010, 8pm to 11pm

Join Dovetail Chicago as we welcome the art of local photographer Jim Newberry.

Jim's website humbly describes him as a "highly experienced, easy to get along with, widely published photographer with a studio in Chicago (and available for travel)." The not-so-humble description would read: Jim Newberry is an exceptionally talented, versatile photographer whose work has appeared in numerous publications, including Rolling Stone and Spin and his subjects include musicians such as Paul McCartney, Joanna Newsom, and Andrew Bird. When he's not shooting portraits of famous people, he's snapping artistic photos on the streets of Chicago.

Please join us April 2 on the opening night of Jim Newberry's month-long show at Dovetail. Drinks and snacks will be served to guests. Guests can also enjoy 15% to 50% off select merchandise that evening. Music by AJ Kluth and Co!

Rabbit’s Moon Window Installation
and Jewelry Collection
by Aragon LTD

Sarah McLaughlin and Meghan Lorenz are killing it at Dovetail. Just look at that window! In the short week that it has been up, their installation has received so many compliments. We love it! Customers love their jewelry too.

Aragon’s first collection and window display are both inspired by avant-garde director Kenneth Anger. Rabbit's Moon goes beyond their taxidermy neon pink-tipped rabbit foot lariats, and mirrored necklaces. Anger's cinematic manifestations of occult practices are captured in crystal necklaces, skull earrings, alter-boy cross necklaces, and rib cage necklaces. The collection has managed to touch the physiological realm, mimicking ink blot tests formations out of upholstery rope and delving into the psychedelic colors of his films, with our tie dye necklaces.

If you weren’t able to make it to the party last week, you still have time to check out the window and their line of jewelry through the end of the month.

Christian Dior Overcoat

This is for all the guys out there who have been waiting for the perfect designer overcoat. Why spend $200 or more for a poorly made spring coat from Banana Republic when this Christian Dior overcoat is just $268 at Dovetail.  This coat is expertly constructed of the thinnest wool fabric, to keep you warm during those cool spring and fall days but without the bulk of layers.  The coat is 20 inches from shoulder to shoulder. Come try it on!
