from the beach, to the city… to the beach

We’re almost ready to leave Florida to head for the Windy City- Chicago is on our minds.  The Old Town Art Fair is this coming weekend, June 9-10.  It is staged in a lovely neighborhood in Lincoln Park, a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan.  The Old Town Triangle Association sponsors the fair and a Garden Walk in their district of historic homes.  The show is a Chicago tradition, drawing a knowledgable and engaged audience. It’s a pleasure to participate in this event, a great kick off to our summer season.

 

From Chicago we cruise to Virginia Beach, VA to show our jewelry at the Boardwalk Art Show sponsored by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).  This was one of the first shows of my career as a jewelry artist, and it holds a special place in my heart.  We look forward to spending 4 days with the Atlantic Ocean as our backdrop, greeting old friends and meeting new collectors.

 

If we don’t see you there, we will see you here when we get back!

I have so many new ideas on my table- necklaces and earrings waiting to come to life.  We have two more shows to do in our winter run before I get some dedicated studio time where I can work on new ideas thoughtfully.  I can’t wait!  In the meanwhile, I’ll keep drawing.  This weekend we are off to Sanibel Island for Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club Art and Craft Fair.  Looking forward to seeing all of my shell collecting collectors there!

six down, four to go

We have passed the center point of our run of 10 shows in a row- and I’m tired!  Planning on getting a good night’s sleep before we open up in Venice, FL for the 17th Annual Downtown Venice Art Classic.  Venice Avenue is lined with great restaurants, which makes for a really great afternoon at the art show.  We’re going to have beautiful weather, so come out to see us if you’re in the area!
