Back in 1999, she created the musical persona <a href="http://peggyhoneywell.com/">Peggy Honeywell</a>. &ldquo;Honeywell&rdquo; is much more than a mere art &ldquo;character&rdquo; for Rojas: It&rsquo;s a bona fide one-woman band. Rojas has put out two sultry, country-inflected folky albums under the Peggy Honeywell moniker, and often incorporates the Honeywell character into her art exhibits.</p><p>Rojas joined <em>Morning Shift</em> to discuss her growth as an artist, and about the&nbsp;journey she&rsquo;s been on for the past decade plus. She&#39;ll also performs songs from her Honeywell catalog.</p><p>Rojas&rsquo; exhibit runs September 21 through October 21 at <a href="http://www.kavigupta.com/">Kavi Gupta Gallery</a> in Chicago.</p></p> Wed, 19 Sep 2012 08:57:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/blogs/bez/2012-09/clare-rojas-explores-abstract-spaces-between-through-her-paintings-and-through-her
