Saturday was a glorious day to wander about town for Open Studios Evanston.
I attended the opening evening of Made in Evanston at Noyes Cultural Art Center on Thursday and marked my map with the works I wanted to learn more about.

I walked over to Creative Coworking where I witnessed a lovely Make and Take by Twisted Fiber Studio.
I chatted about encaustics with one visitor.
Then I had lunch at Bennisonâ€™s Bakery.
The chocolate eclair made up for missing National Donut Day on Friday.
I played with Carol Neigerâ€™s Sphinx Lithograph-the shavings are magnetic and move.
She had wonderful insights about the flow of art making.
Lapin is a fun place to take your laptop for upgrades!
Part of the fun is exploring the various homes and garage spaces the art making happens in.
She makes other fun mixed media art too.
Iâ€™m eager to pop in to The Collage Cafe that is opening up at 709 Sherman Avenue soon.
I was too engaged chatting to take pictures of the space, but Jessica Lynn and Lindy Stockton have pieces at the Noyes Made in Evanston Exhibit.
She sold a piece while I was visiting.
Her mosaic process is inspiring.
I hope my collar pendant enjoys the canine point of view of its new owner.
Hip Circle Studio showcased the veil choreography the students had learned in a single day.
She is showing with Deva Suckerman who transforms salvaged wood into lovely portraits.
Check out the Made in Evanston exhibit at Noyes Cultural Art Center through the end of the month and explore who your favorite artists are.
Creativity and artistry abounds in this north shore community!
