Latest Additions to Art Fairs

I just learned I was accepted in a show at the Bergstrom Mahler Museum in Neenah, Wisconsin on 7/21 (Sunday). This will be my first out of town show. The museum specializes in glass which is a personal interest for us.

Earlier I added Nuts About Art in Dixon, Illinois on the Saturday over the fourth of July weekend. There is one in September at that location which I might add, although my September weekends are busy and there is the possibility of a wait list show finding space for me (I hope).

These shows are smaller than my suburban Chicago shows and are just for one day. I am not fond of the huge shows with crowds of people. I like to spend time talking to the visitors to my booth and showing them personally the items that attract their attention.

I received the final instructions for my first show of the season, so despite the record flooding earlier in April, the show will go on! If you are near Riverside, Illinois the weekend after Mother's Day, please visit. It is held in the park adjacent to the train station, in the heart of town.

I wish I were blogging more, but I've got to turn my ideas for topics into posts.

I am avoiding Facebook because it freezes my computer, so I don't like to use it. Norton utilities reports the sites posting on my wall are safe. But this has been an on going problem with Facebook, so the plan is to blog more.

Enjoy Spring!

Art Fairs as of April 1, 2013

Blogger is not allowing editing of the links right now which means I cannot update my Art Fair Listing. No, it's not April Fool's joke...

I have been accepted to the EM Events shows which are in Riverside, Northbrook, LaGrange and Batavia (Illinois) in May, July, and September. I have been placed on the wait list for shows in Deerfield, Geneva and Lake Forest, Illinois.

Details for patrons have not been updated for this year; I will post when that information is available.
