Here is the lineup for 2017! (Yes, I am a very busy lady!)

August 19 and 20, 2017: Wine and Art Walk
The Wine & Art Walk will take place at Morton Arboretum in Lisle. Booths will be located near the Visitor Center and on the paved walkway surrounding Meadow Lake. All of us artists were selected because we feature nature themes in our work. The event will run from 11 am to 5 pm each day. Last year was the first time the Arboretum held this event and it was very successful. I’m excited to show in such a beautiful setting!
