Gregory Sipp to show mosaic art at the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival

I have been a jazz guy most of my life. I started listening to jazz when I was in the eighth grade. I have wanted to go the Newport Jazz Festival for many years. I know it is the oldest and most respected Jazz Festival in America.

To be in this environment and to be selling my work is truly an honor. My booth will be in the Main Stage area. The name of my business is Gregory Sipp Mosaic Artistry. I make glass mosaic portraits of Jazz artists. I also sell prints of my mosaics. My work was featured on the poster of last year’s Chicago Jazz Festival.

I hope you can come to the festival and please stop by my booth at the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival.

Highlights from Gregory Sipp Mosaic at The Harlem Fine Arts Show Chicago

The Harlem Fine Arts Show was a great experience. There were some internationally known artists there. There were also some celebrities there. S Epatha Merkerson came by my booth and spoke to us about her Chicago show, Chicago Med. She was very down to earth and friendly. In the booth right next to mine was Antonio L. Davis. He paints with his mouth and did excellent work. He is wheel bound and has limited use of his arms.I met a lot of artists and I enjoyed the camaraderie and the sharing that most artists there freely expressed. Overall, the show was a big success and I will be going to the Fine Art shows in the future.
