We’re just one month away from ART IN THE GARDEN.
A wonderful grassroots art fair with a few of my favorite artist friends!
So much fun in a more intimate setting where you actually get to chat with the artists, hang out and relax in the backyard garden. Even better… there are several collaboration projects in the works ONLY for this show! Artist friends working together & sharing their talents to make some one-of-a-kind works of art.

Mark your calendars… September 8th & 9th in Glenview, Illinois.

A quiet morning with great sunrise potential. I expected some amazing colors on the early cloud cover… but instead, the clouds blew out of the way too soon. And all we were left with was a big red ball reflecting in the ripples. Still not too shabby. And now back to Day Two of the GLENVIEW SUMMER ART FAIR!!!

Unloading a new kiln of glazed pieces just in time for this weekend’s Glenview Summer Art Fair. Got some prepping, pricing & packing to do… and then you can come see some new work this Saturday & Sunday on the grounds of Lyons School in Glenview, Illinois from 11:00am-5:00pm.

Next weekend I’ll be back “under the tent” for another weekend art fair. A new one for me… but well-established with a lot of great artists. The 65th Annual Glenview Art League’s Summer Art Fair 2018 will be held on Saturday, July 28th & Sunday, July 29th, 2018 from 11:00am-5:00pm. The art fair is held on the grounds of Lyons School, which is on the corner of Lake Street & Waukegan Road in Glenview, Illinois. Mark your calendar and come on by next weekend!

And since the Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival was cancelled a few years ago…
this is a great opportunity for all of my Evanstonian & North Shore fans to stop by!
