We’re Gearing Up For American Craft Week! The Gallery is Crawling with Bugs!

I’m freshly back from a wildly successful American Craft Exposition show at the Chicago Botanic Garden, and am turning my attention to getting the gallery ready for our “Birds, Bugs and Botanicals” weeklong celebration of American craft for American Craft Week, October 2-10.  New work is coming in daily from artists all over the country, and some from Canada (heck, he’s from North America).  It’ll be a fun show, with Praying Mantis silk-wrapped sculptures from Sandra Klink, fat Bee tiles from Gordon Hare, black and white birds on clothes-lines pottery from Francine Ozereko, Luna Moth earrings from Dawn Estrin at Bijou Graphique, and lovely glass dragonfly ornaments with airplants from David Blake, etc. etc. etc.  If you’re in town, try to drop in sometime during the week!  I’m hosting an opening reception with refreshments on Saturday, October 3rd, from 12-5.  See you there!
