Mark Your Calendars: Upcoming Spring Events!
Hope you’re having a great week! March is already over halfway done (eek!) and today I am excited to share with you some upcoming spring events I will be participating in. One of my goals for this year was to get out of my comfy little internet bubble, and actually show my art to the real world, and it appears that that time has come! So let’s get into it:
First things first, is the “Woman to Woman” Art Show presented by Bojitt Studio and excēd Design Build on Saturday, March 25th from 6-9pm. I am so excited and honored to be part of this show, which features over 50 international, national, and local artists - all with the common goal to bring more community and support to fellow women artists. I got to meet Bojitt a few months ago, and am just so in awe of her passion for connecting and supporting artists - not to mention, her work is amazing!
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to actually attend the show (Curtis and I are going on a birthday trip!), but I’m still really thankful to be part of it, and would encourage all my Chicago friends to go and check out some amazing female artists. Here are the deets:
Woman to Woman Art Show
Saturday, March 25th
6 - 9pm
3044 N. Elston Avenue, Chicago, IL 60618
Next up, I am so excited to officially announce that I will be at The Spring One of A Kind Show! You might remember from this December post, that my grandma and I went to the Holiday Show and had a great time, and I wrote that it would be an absolute dream to be in this show. Well, here we are!
If you’re not familiar - the One Of A Kind Show (ooak) is a huge (like over 300 artists, makers, and designers huge) handmade show at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Artists and attendees come from allllll over, and it’s a big 3 day event! I would really recommend checking out their website, because it has a lot of information and FAQs. Also, they were kind enough to gift each artist free tickets to the show! I have both a promo code for online checkout, or physical postcards that I can give you, so feel free to email me at email@example.com and I can send them your way!
Because it’s my first year at the show (and the first time I’m doing anything in person in a LONG time) I applied to be an Emerging Artist - which means I’ll be in the Emerging Market section of the show. This section is set up more ‘market-style’ with smaller, individual tables as opposed to a whole booth. I’m so excited I went this route, because honestly - I’m freaking out enough as it is (in the best way), ha! You can find me at Booth E25. Here are all the deets:
One Of A Kind Spring Show
Thursday, April 28th - Sunday, April 30th
Thursday + Friday: 10a - 7p and Sunday: 10a - 5p
The Merchandise Mart:
222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago, IL 60654
And there we have it, the upcoming Spring Art festivities!! I really hope you’re able to make it to one or both of these events, and if you’re not - I know you’ll be supporting from afar!
