Flora, Fauna and Fascination Exhibit

While I don’t have any pop ups in October, I am still part of the ongoing Flora, Fauna and Fascination exhibit. Ice House Gallery owner Hannah Litvan curated a beautiful array of artists who each have their own unique artistic expression of nature themes. The opening night was packed, and I was thrilled to see […]

$10,000 Raised By Nasty Women

Wow, the last weekend of September was amazing. Numerous people converged upon 1100 Florence for the Nasty Women Evanston Fundraiser on September 28. They patiently lined up until the doors opened at 6 pm. Then the blinds opened and we could get our first peek at all the art work. Volunteers handed out artist lists […]

Fun at the Artem Trunk Show

From my view, it looks like Evanston Made had a bigger turnout than last year. 110 artists were represented on the map, and stop #17, Artem Pop Up Gallery, had plenty of visitors. We ran out of print maps long before the allotted 5 pm tour end, and several people found us through the google […]

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 […]

Un-Hibernating

It’s been a social few weekends for me. Spring is trying to emerge, and so are friends. After the Stumble & Relish soiree I enjoyed Sketchbook with my friend, again enjoying the Brewery Witch we sampled on International Women’s Day. I had a lovely evening at Creative Coworking on March 23. Paul Minnihan had his beautiful […]
