Saucey Sauce Walk!

I love the Main Dempster Mile and had a blast at the Sauce Walk. I set up at Dietrich 21, a fitness studio I pass by but had not set foot in until our Sauce Walk Pairing.  Agnes took a plethora of photos, so this is quite a well-documented pop-up. Yoga teacher Gina had fun […]

May Art & Wine Night

This week is all about Evanston pop-ups. Thursday evening I will be at D21 for the Evanston Sauce Walk, and Friday I head over to Creative Coworking for another fun evening of libations, treats and gorgeous art. This month’s featured artists are Itala and James Merriner. I’ve admired Itala’s work before and look forward to […]

Creativity at Creative Coworking

My last pop-up in May was a set-up for Evanston Made Month at Creative Coworking. The May-June Art & Wine Night featured macro photography art by Ross Martens and vibrant paintings by Laura Engel. I set up a booth in a conference room, complemented by artwork created by Greg Palmer. As usual, art appreciators came to […]

A lovely local pop-up

On March 18 numerous Evanstonians perused the artful mixed media collages of Melanie Deal. They also chatted under my encaustic and steel wire works on the opposite wall. I also popped up with my jewelry, […]

Hanging my Show

It’s been a fun few months preparing for Friday’s Show Opening. After creating all the substrates and bending the shapes to go on top of the pieces I had to attach the hanging hardware before fusing everything together. Then I fused the wire to the encaustic backgrounds and did the hanging test to make sure […]
