The air is a little crisper with a cool edge to the breeze here in Chicago. Autumn is upon us and that means that it is time for the Ravenswood Art Walk!
The north side art walk takes place this weekend, Oct. 4 -5, 2008 from 11am – 6pm in Chicago. There are over 30 participating venues and over 150 artists.
The art walk takes place on the Ravenswood Ave. industrial corridor (by the Montrose stop on the Brown line). Lillstreet
is part of the walk as well as other ceramic artists
. Most of the studios that will have their doors open this weekend aren’t regularly open to the public so you don’t want to miss it!
If you’re around, I hope you’ll stop by!

I am going to be in a very cool show that opens this week at Lillstreet Gallery
. (Please refer to the diagram in the top left corner and follow along.) The show is made up of work from five pairs of artists. Each ceramic artist made 1 piece(s) from start the finish and another piece(s) halfway. Then traded the leather hard piece with their partner. The partner decorated, finished and fired the piece(s). Each pair will display their four pieces. I haven’t seen any of the other pieces yet, so I am really excited to see what everyone did.

I think this is an exercise that every ceramic artist should try. You learn so much about your own work and your approach to it by seeing your form through someone else’s eyes. I will be posting pictures of the show soon so you can see the work even if you’re not in Chicago.
