It’s a week of regrouping as my muscles recover from the Ravenswood ArtWalk and I review inventory for the upcoming Makers Market here in Evanston. This week, you can visit my swarm at the Flora Fauna and Fascination Exhibit. Ice House Gallery is located at 609 South Blvd. in Evanston. Hours are Friday-Saturday 12-6pm and […]

18th Ravenswood ArtWalk this weekend

Time flies when you’re having fun! Fresh off the Flora, Fauna and Fascination opening, I am now gathering what remains of my swarm, along with new babybees, to prepare for the Ravenswood ArtWalk. This year the Ravenswood ArtWalk takes place from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 & 15. I […]

A Beehive for Ice House Gallery

Artists who work with encaustics are naturally bee lovers as well, and I have often toyed with the idea of a beehive. My friend Bridgette Guerzon Mills made a gorgeous hive for an outdoor art installation, which I find very inspiring. I started making bees last year and really enjoy the design I came up with. […]

Making Flora

Chicago Artisan Market July 21

I am gearing up for another market this weekend. On Sunday, July 21 from 10 am to 4 pm, I will be at the Chicago Artisan Market.  This curated market celebrates the ingenuity of independent, small businesses who channel their passions into creating one-of-a-kind products. Meet and shop with the artisans and learn how they […]

Fun at the Artem Trunk Show

From my view, it looks like Evanston Made had a bigger turnout than last year. 110 artists were represented on the map, and stop #17, Artem Pop Up Gallery, had plenty of visitors. We ran out of print maps long before the allotted 5 pm tour end, and several people found us through the google […]

Evanston Made at Artem Pop Up Gallery

On Saturday a plethora of local artists will open their studios to offer a glimpse at their methodology and creative habitats to the public. This once-a-year event is a wonderful way to get to know Evanston better and appreciate the creativity that abounds in our city. I don’t want to make anyone climb three flights […]
