We’ve been home for a month- it’s been luxurious! Got organized, spent some time on the beach, worked on new projects at a slower pace. I’ve really enjoyed having the time to work on some major pieces after our hectic winter and spring schedule- it left me slap worn out. In a few days we head to Madison, WI for the Art Fair on the Square– a huge, dynamic art show surrounding the state capitol building. It’s an impressive show and setting, sponsored by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.

we’re on Mifflin- #838
But the real kicker is the CHEESE! There is a shop called Fromagination on the square, with some seriously aged cheddar at their counter. I can’t wait to savor some again- it’s hard to find in Florida. I’ll let you know my favorites- they ship, you know.
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.

Hey, it’s us!
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.
Such a pretty show

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

Four shows (in a row) down, six to go- our Florida schedule is not for the faint of heart! This weekend we will be in Estero, FL (on the SW side) for the Coconut Point Art Festival. Lots of new work to show since our last visit there! Here’s the event information: Coconut Point Art Festival

Sarasota, FL is this weekend’s destination- we will be showing at the St. Armand’s Circle Art Festival. The circle is a really happening shopping and dining destination on the road to Lido Key- it’s a great place to spend the afternoon, and the art festival is a perfect addition to the scene. Come out and join the fun!
…a working weekend! This is the beginning of the season for Florida art shows, and we’re heading to one of our favorites- the Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art Festival. Great original art and craft, beautiful venue, great music, and food! Our friend Lisanne Robinson, who owns the funky, cool Beyond Useless Boutique on US 1 in downtown Sebastian, organizes the event- it’s as much fun as her shop! Come see our latest, including a new batch of long lariat necklaces.
one of our favorite shows is happening next weekend- the 17th annual Sebastian Riverfront Art and Music Festival! A beautiful setting, exceptional artwork, and a fun town to visit- make a day of it! Hot Pink is playing on Sunday, they’re a blast!
