Heading to Chicago

"Tents in the Square," oil, 10"h x 8"w, ©Jill Banks 2014 was painted at Rittenhouse last weekend.
There was going to be a two-week break between shows ... but yesterday I received a call inviting me to the Old Town Art Fair (in the Old Town Triangle District) in Chicago, IL this weekend, June 13 & 14 ... so I'm en route.

Hours are 10am to 6pm both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine.  Suggested adult donation of $7 for the show.

For more info, click here.

Last minute notice isn't easy and I'd pass but this is a remarkable show.

If you know folks in Chicago, please send them my way.  Booth #2 on Menomonee Street in Old Town Chicago. Considering my booth information will be missing from the maps ... I could use some help.

Fellow studiomate Cindy Grisdela will be there, too. (This is her second year.) Two Artists' Atelier members from Great Falls, VA in Chicago at the same show. Pretty neat!

Thanks for reading!
