Spring ArtWalk in St. Charles – this weekend!

Spring ArtWalk in St. Charles – this weekend!

I am honored to be asked to be a part of the St. Charles Riverfront Spring Art Walk this weekend.  I will be at 116 North Main Street, in a chapel, with 8 other talented artists.  In addition to my glass jewelry, I will have some of my mixed media pieces available for sale & viewing!  See wonderful creative works – hear talented musicians – taste some lovely wines – have a great time!

While you’ve there, stroll through Old Town St. Charles to the Glass Workbench – one of my favorite stained glass shops is also hosting its own Spring Art Contest – I have one stained glass entry, an entry in fused glass, in collaboration with Pat Kenya, and my niece Micah Streubel has a stained glass & painted werewolf entry…
