Evanston Made Anticipation

Phew, It’s been major prep time for me this past week. Fresh off the Sauce Walk I had to pick out my pieces for the Evanston Made Pop Up Shop. Then I was asked to bring some pieces to Nasty Women as well. So, in addition to the Hermosa ArtShow this weekend, I’ll be spending […]

Friends in mid-June Openings

Mid-June seems to be the time for many gallery openings. I attended 4 between Thursday and Sunday. I was Ahavani Mullen’s “plus one” for Art in Motion, which turned into a “presidential” FUSEDChicago gathering. (Ahavani is a vice president and I am co-President). There was an auction for paintings done by patients of the rehabilitation […]

Numerous fiber arts promise to keep you and your loved ones warm, while cheering the spirit with […]
