Another fun Ravenswood ArtWalk Weekend

In mid-September I pulled out the checklist and started gathering my art booth supplies for the weekend. This year my booth for the Ravenswood ArtWalk was in the Hayes Properties Atrium. This was a new venue to me, but a few veterans directed me in where to set up my booth. Soon we all had […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk this weekend

Fresh off the Girls Nite Out event in Elmhurst, I am busy prepping for the Ravenswood ArtWalk. Ravenswood ArtWalk is celebrating its 16th anniversary, once again bringing hundreds of artists into the community and filling the street with art, music, great food and local craft beer. The 2017 Ravenswood ArtWalk takes place on Saturday, September 16 […]

Girls Nite Out and ArtWalk week

It’s a busy week for me! Tomorrow I head out to Elmhurst for the Girls Nite Out Event. Since I had a blast at the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art last year, I might stroll the Elmhurst Art Museum Wednesday morning prior to my setup time.   The Wilder Mansion hosts Girls Nite Out from 4 to […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk IV

Being part of the Ravenswood ArtWalk is always fun. This year Architectural Artifacts offered their Artifacts Events space to Ravenswood ArtWalk artists, and we were so fortunate to get to be in this spot. I had never visited the store, but am planning to go back to look at all the things. How amazing are […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk is this weekend!

I’m SOOOO excited!  This year I will be at Architectural Artifacts during the Ravenswood ArtWalk. I’ve heard of this venue so much and never been inside, so this will be a great introduction to all the raves. This year the 15th annual Ravenswood ArtWalk is held September 10 and 11 from 11 am to 6 […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk, the third

September was a whirlwind of weekend fairs and pop-up applications. The Ravenswood ArtWalk was moved to mid-September as well, which proved to be a great idea weather wise. I had secured an indoor spot, which meant that the weather was lovely on both days. Had I been outside, the outcome would have been different, with […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk lineup for this weekend

Guess what? After two years of struggling through weather issues, I secured an indoor spot at the Ravenswood ArtWalk this year. The event has also moved to mid-September instead of the fall-ish October weekend. On Saturday September 19 and Sunday September 20, the businesses, studios and shops along Ravenswood Avenue will open their doors from […]

Ravenswood ArtWalk recap

The Ravenswood ArtWalk turned out to be a good event for me. On Saturday we had the coldest day of the season, which had me running home to get a heavier coat after my coffee run. No one was ready to get their winter coats out, but even gloves were necessary. I have to say […]

A bit raw about RAW

When every day is an adventure, it is hard to get your bearings. After much anticipation, repricing and retagging, the Ravenswood Art Walk wasn’t quite what I had hoped it would be.   I brought in the borrowed table and old shelving unit the night before to keep nerves and muscle strength preserved. The next […]
