Here is the lineup for 2019 so far. I will add shows as application results arrive!
In addition to these shows I will always have work in the Gallery at ClaySpace, the LaGrange Art League Gallery, and in the gift shop of The Growing Place in Naperville. Of course you can also contact me via email with special requests!
March 1 through March 30: ClaySpace Gallery
I will pair with printmaker Jill Kramer for a joint show at the ClaySpace Gallery called “A Kinder Cut”. We chose this title since the work we will both show involves cutting: Jill does wonderful linoleum cuts and I will be featuring my sgraffito work, with lots of new designs, all in black and white! Our opening will be from 7 to 9 pm on Friday, March 1, and the show will continue during gallery hours until March 30. ClaySpace is located at 740 Front Street in Lisle.
April 27 and 28: 49th Annual Art Fair
This great show is sponsored by the North Shore Unitarian Church in Deerfield. The show features fine art and fine crafts in a beautiful contemporary church setting. Saturday the show runs from 10 am to 6 pm and on Sunday it goes from 11am to 5 pm. North Shore Unitarian Church is located at 2100 Half Day Road in Deerfield, easy to reach, just off the Tri-state Tollway.

August 17 and 18: 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. I’m excited to show in such a beautiful setting!

Celebrating its 23st year, the West End Art Festival is a tradition for LaGrange and the surrounding suburbs. The show takes place along Burlington Avenue in front of the historic Stone Avenue Station. Saturday hours are from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday the show runs from 10 am to 4 pm. I look forward to returning this year to one of my favorite shows!
