Evanston Made closes next week

Evanston Made is ending next week, but not without a plethora of events for you to peruse the fabulous art in this month-long event. The organizers are making sure you still have opportunities to visit the venues you may have missed earlier this month. On Wednesday, June 26, the filmmakers of SIDE/Lot will be at […]

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 […]

Evanston Made Kicks off May 31

I am so excited for this upcoming weekend! I am tagging and preparing ornaments and stakes to be part of the month-long pop up shop at the Evanston Art Center in conjunction with Evanston Made. 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 […]

Evanston Made Mixer the first

It’s been a wonderfully social few weeks for me, with Evanston Made being a key theme. 1100 Florence hosted the very first Evanston Made Member mixer, which gave us an overview of membership and allowed us to network amongst ourselves. I met new-to-me artists and also interacted with those I had met at prior Evanston […]

Evanston Made Sip & Shop

Clearly June is the month everyone wants to frolic and play. On Thursday, Evanston Made is hosting the Evanston Made Sip & Shop at the Evanston Art Center. This all-women event is held from 6 to 8 pm on June 28 at 1717 Central Street in Evanston. We became poster ladies from last year’s event. […]

Evanston’s Terrain Biennial

On a recent summery Sunday I did an art scavenger hunt in Evanston. As part of the 3rd Terrain Biennial, Evanston artists have organized eight host locations on a walkable route, along Wesley and Florence between Emerson and Dempster. Eight homes are hosting the work of nine artists on the front yard, porch, or facade. […]

Dressmaking part 2

Earlier this year I took a dressmaking class at the lovely Evanston Stitchworks. Then when my mom came to visit, instead of heading to the Mall we picked out my new future wardrobe based on the gorgeous fabrics owner Amalia curates at Stitchworks. It was good to get a second opinion on some of the […]
