Evanston Sidewalk Sale Pods

We had a heat wave in Evanston Friday and Saturday. After the ever-lasting winter, I am not complaining. My one A/C unit is in the studio, so I set it up and when the ceiling fans could do no more I cleared off the futon to set up my computer station. Of course I got […]

Evanston Made Pop Up Shop

Phew, what a week it has been! On Wednesday I helped set up the Evanston Made pop up shop at the Evanston Art Center, and the shop and exhibit were both packed during Friday’s opening party. The group show is amazing, and worth a perusal. Several artists already had red dots early in the night, […]

Evanston Made at Artem Pop Up Gallery

On Saturday a plethora of local artists will open their studios to offer a glimpse at their methodology and creative habitats to the public. This once-a-year event is a wonderful way to get to know Evanston better and appreciate the creativity that abounds in our city. I don’t want to make anyone climb three flights […]

On Friday, May 31, the Evanston Art Center will be teeming with local artists and their friends for the Evanston […]

It’s time to get back into the Art Fair groove! I am glad I have a checklist because after 2 months I need a reminder of what to bring. This Sunday, I will be popping up at the Handmade Market from 12 to 4 p.m. Handmade Market is a unique event to connect the makers […]

March Handmade Market on Saturday

Last month was a blast at the Handmade Market. The streets were cleared from the snowstorm and while side streets by the Empty Bottle were slightly messy, I found a spot on a plowed road and happily unloaded my things. This Saturday I return to Handmade Market Chicago from 12 PM – 4 PM at […]

Sidewalk Sale fun

It is interesting to see how different pockets of Evanston participate in the Sidewalk Sale. Last year I had a blast with See Jane Sparkle on Chicago and Dempster, where the Sidewalk Sale is a big event. This year I learned that on Sherman Avenue in Downtown Evanston, the participating merchants are less concentrated. I […]

Summer is here, and with it come leisurely strolls around neighborhoods to peruse art and beauty.  On June 10 I visited the bustling Lincoln Square Neighborhood for a Meet & Greet at Sacred Art. I set up my wares in a lovely nook, and met wonderful customers. Sacred Art hosts handmade creations by more than […]
