Chicago Art Girls are gearing up for another fun Spring Pop-Up Shop!

We're back for our 3rd Spring Pop-Up event, and our 5th show to date!  I've been a part of this amazing group of Chicago area women for many years, and we decided a few years back to take matters into our own hands and organize our own art shows twice a year.  We officially incorporated at the beginning of this year, and we're now functioning as an Illinois Not-For-Profit.  I also happen to be on our first Board of Directors, so I helped in writing our group's by-laws, organizing committees, and getting processes in place to move forward.

This undertaking has been a huge learning process, a huge commitment, and an exciting addition to Rapt in Maille.  The energy surrounding our group continues, and we hope you can make our one-day Pop-up!  I will be exhibiting at the Spring Show, along with 24 of our other members, and 12 guest artists.  This is the day before Mother's Day, so a perfect time to spend a nice afternoon of shopping with Mom, and to pick out a special, unique gift for her.  Artwork for sale will include a wide selection of one-of-a-kind, handmade goods, including jewelry, clothing and t-shirts for adults and kids, bags and purses, stationery and paper products, housewares, ceramics, glass and enamelware, fiber work and felted knitwear, photography, paintings, eco-friendly wood accessories and artisan chocolates.

Here is a list of our artists for this spring:

Rapt in Maille; Deana Rose Handmade Jewelry; Kiku Handmade; Nancy Gardner Ceramics; Marstinia Enamel Designs; Eva May; Sara Lenart Jewelry Design; Hooey Batiks;  Anne Leuck Feldhaus;  Red-Belly; Sharon J Sears; Daisy Bags; Ladysmith Jewelry Studio; Felt Inspired; Weener Ware; (wired) jewelry; Staci Sterenberg; Megan Lee Designs; Jewelry by Venus; Stylish Girl; Sue Rosengard; Circa Ceramics; Veronica Riley Martens; Anastasia Mak; Judy Zeddies; Molly Cranch; Katherine Anne Confections;  Four Eyes Handmade; Sam & Coop; Cory McCrory; Melissa Z.
