I love the American Craft Exposition, because it gives me a local opportunity to connect with artists from all over the country. So much of a show is talking to other artists, getting ideas, feeling dynamic.
And the ACE show is also awesome, because proceeds support breast and ovarian cancer research and care at the NorthShore University HealthSystem. And doing anything to contribute to support a cause like that feels really important.
Though the show isn't for another few weeks -- August 22 to 24 -- I'm already preparing for what's sure to be a great event: updating the catalog, making new statement pieces, and hauling out the display gear.
Below, find some shot of in-progress work. Then, come visit me at ACE to see the finished product!
