ART IN THE GARDEN
A wonderful grassroots art fair thrown together by a bunch of talented friends & artists. So much fun to have a smaller event that gives everyone time to chat, hang out and really get to see everything! Plus, several of the artists are working on collaboration projects with each other… an opportunity to work together and mix medias that don’t always get to play together! So much fun to see what everyone comes up with. We hope you can join us this weekend, September 7th & 8th from 10:00am-5:00pm in Glenview, Illinois.

With ART IN THE GARDEN in just a few days… looks like Cory is racing to the Finish Line… and making sure that all of her collaboration pieces make it into that one last kiln that comes out “just in time” for the art fair this weekend!!! I see color… and texture… and whimsy… three of my favorite things!!! Can’t wait to see the finished pieces when mine get added into the mix this Saturday & Sunday in Glenview, Illinois!!!
