Last week I browsed the Evanston Art Centerâ€™s 12th Annual Winter Arts & Crafts EXPO at the Evanston Art Center.
It is a vibrant exhibit of local artists who have hand-crafted holiday gifts for you and your family.
Numerous fiber arts promise to keep you and your loved ones warm, while cheering the spirit with fun colors.
Those in love with ceramics can peruse a roomful of creations.
Jewelry is abundant, and so varied.
I am inspired by all I see.
And look, I have a cute little tree showcasing my ornaments (and keychains).
There is also plenty of wall art ranging from cigar band collages to encaustics.
The EXPO is open to the public Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm until December 22.
Encaustic artist Robin Samiljan is back, like a few other familiar names from last year.
Iâ€™ll be gallery sitting on December 19 for a few hours.
Mensâ€™ Shopping Day is Saturday, December 20th from 10 am to 4 pm.
The last shopping day will be December 22nd.
All proceeds from the EXPO sale will benefit EAC’s ongoing exhibition, scholarship, and outreach programs, which is where I got my start exhibiting.
