$10,000 Raised By Nasty Women

Wow, the last weekend of September was amazing. Numerous people converged upon 1100 Florence for the Nasty Women Evanston Fundraiser on September 28. They patiently lined up until the doors opened at 6 pm. Then the blinds opened and we could get our first peek at all the art work. Volunteers handed out artist lists […]

Terrain Biennial and open studios this weekend

PHEW. It’s been an intense weekend, and I am still recovering from the activities and the crazy weather swings. I try to get in daily walks to keep my muscles supple and get some perspective via the Lake. I am eager to recap all the September fun, but today I need to take care of […]

September NTaJ! challenge: found object art

For the September Now That’s a Jig! Challenge, we were tasked with using Bob Ebendorf’s art work as inspiration. Brenda Schweder is a longtime fan of his work, but his name was new to me. So I surfed the web looking for his work, and became a bit overwhelmed. How in the world would I […]

This year the Ravenswood ArtWalk takes place from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 14 & 15. I […]

New pieces at Artem Gallery

Recently my elaborate copper necklace sold, which was a test piece to see if someone would collect it. So I worked on a collar to add to the wrapped jasper I had brought in before. I really like this look, and I think it elevates the pendants too. I also replenished the musical pendants that […]
