I just got invited by the one and only Paul Klein to speak on an artist panel at the stARTup Art Fair! Thank you so much! Everyone, save the date for Sunday early afternoon, September 25, at Chicago’s MileNorth Hotel. [Update: The discussion will be at 1pm in Room 404.]

Speaking of art fairs, I’m back from a brief trip to New York (photos on Instagram) and have a new post on Time Out Chicago: 9 art gallery exhibitions to see in September, including Expo Chicago, which I always look forward to.


Thank you for all the birthday wishes a couple weeks ago!

And be sure to read the previous post featuring a lovely artist studio visit with represented painter Sheila Arora!

Love Letters: An Artist Studio Visit with Sheila Arora

Conducted a studio visit at represented artist / actual ray of sunshine Sheila Arora’s apartment in Chicago’s Loop (look at that view!) and sold a painting to architect (and fellow Columbia University alum) Chyanne Husar! Thank you for your support, Chyanne! And thanks to Sheila for letting us into your home and your mind!

More behind-the-scenes photos below. Step into Sheila’s world!

(As announced in this post, Sheila—who was a part of my latest interactive exhibition, LEXICON—has entrusted me with the honor of being her artist agent and representative, and I couldn’t be more pleased.)

Sheila keeps her place downtown “barebones” and “in neutrals,” an amusing contrast to her art, which is as bold, colorful, confident, and imaginative as she is.

The Princeton graduate is nothing if not prolific; most of her pieces in her current collection were created within the past year and a half! It’s incredible how she can sustain so much creative energy; she has a corporate job out in the suburbs, so she only has a few hours every night to paint. And she does.

We shared great conversations on how art can set the tone for your home. What colors do you want to wake up to? What emotions do you want to live with?

Sold! Sheila Arora's painting that Chyanne Husar purchased.

Chyanne ultimately chose a fun and vibrant work on paper that she knew would make her happy.

Sold! Sheila Arora, Untitled, acrylic on paper.

If any galleries would like to showcase Sheila’s work, let me know! You can view Sheila’s portfolio on her site.

Also, in case you didn’t see the edit I made to the previous post, I’ve been featured on Asians Doing Everything! Thank you! (That’s two features in two days, the other being Women of Wednesday, author Olivia Cole’s interview series with women of color!)

And my birthday’s tomorrow! (If you follow me on social media, you might’ve seen my nostalgic look back on a past celebration.) Want to give me a present? Give yourself one and buy art!

I—and LEXICON—have been featured in Women of Wednesday, author Olivia Cole’s interview series with women of color! “Jenny Lam on Bridging Segregation with Art and the Necessity of Representation.” Thank you so much, Olivia!

Throwback to when I matched a Miami mural. (Wall by Ahol Sniffs Glue.)

[Update: I’m also featured on Asians Doing Everything! Thank you!]

Also, I have a new post on Time Out Chicago: 8 art gallery exhibitions to see in August. Check out my previous post for other stuff to see.

Poetry in Motion

Here they are! Your interpretations and meanings (and even poems!) you wrote on Post-it notes at LEXICON, as well as all the artists’ original statements, which, as you know, were not revealed during the interactive exhibition’s entire run. Some of the statements were created specifically for the show and have never been seen before until now. Take a look; it’s the perfect source for Monday motivation!

Guess who. (Left by graffiti artist Solo RM.)

In other news: I’ve been verified on Twitter! Thank you!

And here’s:

Happy August / Leo season! (Adrienne Glover, one of my LEXICON artists, to me: “You’re the most low-key Leo ever. What’s your rising sign?”)
